Jagiellonian University commended for its activities concerning gender equality

Jagiellonian University commended for its activities concerning gender equality

The publication Horizon Europe Guidance on Gender Equality Plans, published by the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, commends the Jagiellonian University’s Department of Security, Safety and Equal Treatment for actively working towards gender equality within the University.

The document points out that the JU Department of Security, Safety and Equality focuses on identifying cases of gender inequality at the University, raising awareness concerning the subject as well as preventing discrimination and gender-based violence. In addition, together with the JU Institute of Sociology, the Department realises an EU-funded project MINDtheGEPs.

This Guidance supports organisations to meet the Gender Equality Plan (GEP) eligibility criterion of the Horizon Europe Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2021-2027. For Horizon Europe calls for proposals with deadlines in 2022 and beyond, applying public bodies, research organisations and higher education institutions, from EU Member States and associated countries, must have a GEP or equivalent strategy in place to be eligible for funding. This Guidance presents the components of the eligibility criterion as set by the European Commission, explains what these requirements mean in practice when developing and implementing a GEP or reviewing the equivalence of existing plans or policies, and provides concrete practical examples, building on existing materials, good practices and various resources that support gender equality in research and innovation (R&I) at national and institutional levels.

The Full version of the guidance is available at the Publications Office of the European Union website.
