LIBRA is an Horizon 2020 European Commission funded project coordinated at the CRG by the senior scientist and ICREA professor Isabelle Vernos with the objective to advance Gender Equality in the partner institutions through Gender Equality Plans (GEPs).
The partner institutions in LIBRA are the members of the alliance EU-LIFE and the expert organisation on gender (ASDO). LIBRA assessed the policies and procedures to identify gender biases and obstacles in each of the institutes in order to design and finally implement an institute tailored GEP.
GEPs aim to bring about long lasting and profound structural changes to remove institutional barriers and empower women to be equally successful as men in their research careers. The design and implementation of the GEP at the CRG was coordinated by the CRG Gender Balance Committee.
Start: October 2015 - End: March 2019
European commission selected LIBRA as a success story in March 2019: https://ec.europa.eu/research/infocentre/article_en.cfm?artid=49945
