Create a gender argument bank to provide concrete evidence and good examples to show how STI institutions can invest in more gender-sensitive and gender-specific research.
Integrating intersectional gender analysis into research content to better address societal challenges has not yet become a priority in multilateral and bilateral agreements and scientific policy dialogues. A lack of capabilities and resistance from institutions partly explains this.
The prototype will foster research that benefits everyone equally through an argument bank, a fact sheet with key resources (concrete examples and set of best practices), and common questions and objections on the topic answered for targeted sectors that help to explain why international STI dialogues should enforce taking the gender dimension into R&I content and how to do it.
The prototype will foster research that benefits everyone equally through an argument bank factsheet by establishing a list of common objections/resistances faced when seeking to incorporate gender-based analysis into research as a requirement in scientific international cooperation and according to the stakeholder targeted (e.g. RFOs, RPOs, policy makers).
Actions to be implemented
1) Produce factsheets targeting each category of stakeholders by including them in the process aimed.
2) Creating mechanisms and resources for the new research on gender perspective in STI/STEM
