WHY: This training focuses on the sex and gender dimension in the research field of Robotics and it will provide an overview on sex and gender dimensions in research with a special focus on Robotics. The training will help the participants understand the concepts of sex and gender and their relevance for research – focusing on robotics-related topics. Also, it is going to sensitise on the importance of including the sex and gender dimension into research projects and designing more gender-sensitive projects and it will provide practical strategies to implement a gender approach in robotics-related research.
