The summit will focus on the cross-cutting role of gender and how gender has been and should be integrated within some of the major themes of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme, such as personalised health, water resources, energy, environment, transportation. 

Speakers and participants will examine the latest research evidence and showcase studies and projects, organisations and strategies that have significantly improved research and innovation quality by integrating the gender dimension into research design and process.

Since it began in 2011, the Gender Summit has developed into an effective platform for dialogue where scientists, gender experts and policy makers can jointly explore research evidence that examines gender as a key research variable. The Gender Summit aim to promote evidence-based actions that address gender equality issues in science, where gender shapes and is shaped through knowledge, culture and participation.
