EU recognises gender equality work in research with a new prize

This year, the European Commission is launching a prize to recognise organisations that drive changes towards increased gender equality within research and innovation. The prize amount is 100 000 EUR.

Organisations that work actively with gender equality plans can apply for the EU’s new prize. It is aimed at higher education institutions and research organisations (both private and public) within the EU.

The competition is divided up into three categories, and the prize amount is 100 000 EUR within each category.

Sustainable Gender Equality Champions

Applicants should be organisations that can show important and sustainable results in the implementation of their gender equality plans.

Newcomer Gender Equality Champions

Applicants should be organisations that have recently implemented a gender equality plan and can show a clear positive development and results achieved.

Inclusive Gender Equality Champions

Applicants should be organisations that have developed innovative gender equality plans which also include other social categories, such as ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or functional disability.

The European Research Executive Agency (REA) will be dealing with the applications, and the winners are selected by an independent expert jury. There will be one jury for each category.

The deadline for applications is 13 October.
