Gender in Research Training Session

Content overview

How is the gender dimension integrated into a project?

The training introduces a practical toolkit. It comprises an overall introduction into gender and research and shows how gender is interwoven with all aspects of research. It then examines in pragmatic terms how the gender dimension of research content contributes to excellence in research. It also analyses case studies based on concrete examples drawn from nine specific research fields: health; food, agriculture and biotechnology; nanosciences, materials and new production technologies; energy; environment; transport; socio-economic sciences and humanities; science in society and specific activities of international cooperation.

The specific research fields covered in the training session held at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) will be: HEALTH and SCIENCE IN SOCIETY

Training method
One-day training sessions: the morning consists of a general introduction to gender in research, while in the afternoon two specific research fields (in this case HEALTH and SCIENCE IN SOCIETY) are addressed with practical exercises in parallel sessions. The method combines cognitive (knowledge-based) and inductive (experience-based) elements. The programme is constructed as much as possible as an interactive workshop, where all participants have the opportunity to contribute to the session.
