ACT International Synergy Conference
The purpose of this conference is to report on the contribution of the H2020 ACT project to advance gender equality in research and innovation in the EU. The approach developed by ACT is based on the concept of Community of Practice (CoP). ACT created, developed and supported eight CoPs, as well as a range of tools to help CoPs operate at institutional, inter-institutional, and EU-wide levels, and keep advancing best practice for gender equality in R&I. The ACT Communities of Practice are collectives of representatives of universities, research and innovation (R&I) institutions and research funding organisations across Europe with a shared domain of interest in advancing the implementation of the European Research Area gender goals.
The ACT Consortium invites science and innovation leaders, decision-makers, researchers and practitioners ready to collaborate, co-create and co-produce gender equality in R&I.
Originally, the conference was to be hosted by the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
