This year’s European Gender Summit under the theme ‘Aligning Agendas for Excellence‘ will take place on 29 -30 Nov 2012 at the European Parliament in Brussels.
Building on the great success of last year’s event, the European Gender Summit 2012 brings together top-level researchers, science leaders, and policy makers to examine gender issues that impact on the implementation of the upcoming HORIZON 2020, European Research Area, and Innovation Union.
Distinguished scientists will discuss opportunities for advancing excellence through greater awareness of the role of gender as a dimension of research content, and as an important driver to promote innovation and mobility of talent and knowledge.
The 2012 edition of the European Gender Summit will demonstrate innovative initiatives in the area of gender equality introduced by leading science institutions, such as the League for European Research Universities (LERU), German Research Foundation (DFG), European Research Council (ERC), National Science Foundation (NSF) and European Commission (EC). The Summit is designed to confront common challenges at national, EU and international levels.
