After expanding to North America in 2013, this year the Gender Summit returns to Brussels. The Gender Summit 4 – Europe 2014 (GS4EU) will, again, bring together experts from research, industry and policy to consider gender research evidence and the ways of improving the quality and impact of research and innovation through the inclusion of gender in science knowledge making and application. The Programme will focus Horizon 2020, the current €80bn funding programme of the European Commission. GS4EU’s Themes and Tracks will focus on the cross-cutting role of gender and how gender can be integrated within the different calls, through actions enhancing gender equality and through inclusion in research and innovation content. The GS4EU provides an early opportunity for H2020 applicants to explore with experts how gender can be best accommodated in their proposals.
