European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) in brief 2018
The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) is the only European Union agency focusing solely on gender equality. With substantial resources already collected and developed, EIGE is becoming the EU knowledge centre for gender equality.
We are working to make equality between women and men a reality in the EU and beyond, so that everyone can have the same opportunities in life, regardless of gender. EIGE’s research paves the way for a greater understanding and awareness of gender equality in all areas of life. We identify gaps between women and men and collect and analyse data on gender ine-qualities. By providing evidence-based, practical information, we support policymakers to bring Europe closer to gender equality and improve the lives of both women and men.
