What is a Gender Action Plan?
Proposals of Integrated Projects and Networks must include an action
plan on gender issues which contains what actions and activities will
be carried out to promote the role of female scientists within the project.
The GAP should provide detailed information on actions to be undertaken
and monitored to encourage women (or men in case they are
under-represented) to apply for research positions, to ensure that equal
opportunities will be promoted in recruitment at all levels, and to encourage
the participation of women in management and scientific committees, where
they usually are under-represented. It should also define how relevant
gender aspects in research content will be addressed and monitored.
