WHY:  This online Summer School will focus on gender research in cities and planning processes. It will look at the gender dimensions of urban and transportation research, considering in particular gendered-relevant aspects of important cross-cutting issues such as climate, energy and ICT at the urban scale.

Gender affects who does research, how and which research questions are identified as important. Which methodologies are chosen, the case studies and data sets used, and the analysis undertaken. For an increasing number of researchers, these considerations are explicit, but for others they remain implicit, or even unconscious.

This online summer school aims to provide participants with the knowledge and tools necessary to explore how gender affects their existing or proposed research and to understand what it means to integrate a gender perspective into research and what it implies.

During 5 days, keynote talks, seminars, participatory debates and workshop on real cases will be carried out in order to actively involve the participants, fostering an exchange of knowledge and experiences. The purpose is to provide the participants with a basis of knowledge and tools to integrate gender in their personal research on urban planning, mobility, climate or energy fields.
