European Observatory on Gender in STI

The European Observatory on Gender in STI is the first of its kind in Europe. It is a hub that aims to connect all organizations and initiatives interested in supporting gender equality in international cooperation in STI.

The Observatory houses all knowledge and materials produced by the project and works to promote a healthy debate on gender equality matters in STI and contribute to common solutions. These resources were gathered among the different gender initiatives such as the sister projects as well as other participants with an international scope from countries within the 4 continents.

Co-Design Labs and Gender Equality Solutions

The Gender STI Co-Design Labs engaged STI stakeholders in a dynamic mix of workshops, demonstrations and guided hands-on teamwork based on design thinking principles. The project used the Co-Design Labs to develop common solutions for common challenges regarding gender inequalities in STI. These were created in the form of prototypes.
