The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) upholds its reputation as the knowledge centre for gender equality in the European Union (EU). EIGE’s data and evidence are essential in helping Europe’s leaders to design measures that are inclusive and promote gender equality in all areas of life, especially amid technological and climate change, the changing nature of work and widening inequalities, increasing influence of new governing systems, backlash against progress towards gender equality, new security challenges, and the cost-of-living crisis. 

This Single Programming Document covers the period 2024-2026. EIGE’s work in the years to come will closely follow the outcomes of the European Parliament elections in 2024, where a new European Commission and Political Guidelines will be presented. This period also includes the final phase of the current EU Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025.
