Cumbre Europea de Género

Bruselas, 8 y 9 de Noviembre de 2016

The Gender Summit is a platform for evidence-based and consensus-focused dialogue between scientists, policy makers, gender scholars, and key stakeholder groups in science endeavours. The Gender Summit Europe 2016 coincides with important policy developments in Europe and globally that look towards science knowledge and technological innovation to create a better future for all.  Significant here are: the new EU Gender Action Plan and Horizon 2020; the UN Sustainable Development Goals; the African Union’s Africa 2063 and Continental Education Strategy Africa agenda; and the OECD vision for Inclusive Innovation and Creating Our Common Future through Science and Technology.  Therefore this year’s Gender Summit opens up dialogue on how an understanding of sex/gender issues in research and innovation can also ensure sustainable and effective development.


New research on when, why and how sex-gender issues impact on quality of research, innovation, and development outputs and outcomes
How gender continues to be addressed in Horizon 2020
How to mainstream gender into the EU new vision for ERA of Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the World
How the global policy agendas to make the world a better place for all can benefit from incorporating scientific understanding of sex-gender issues
New efforts to develop reliable, and region and sector sensitive, performance metrics and gender equality indicators and statistics, and to integrate them into research, innovation, and development policy actions
The contributions made by the Gender Summit platform, and its global community of experts and practitioners, to advance gender-sensitive and responsive research, innovation, and development.

The Gender Summits create synergies between actors, agendas, and actions. As in the past events, GS9 will engage scientists, policy makers, gender scholars, and diverse stakeholder groups in examining new research evidence and establishing consensus where improvements are needed and what actions can achieve them.

GS9 programme will combine plenary and breakout sessions, knowledge-exchange sessions, networking breaks, poster exhibition, sponsors’ exhibition stands, as well as linking participants through social networks. Expected participation is 300 attendees from 40 countries representing academia, policy, media, industry and organisations working in areas related to science.


Our multi-stakeholder engagement begins with the diverse partnership of convenors and sponsors who collaborate to present the Summits. Read about the GS9 Europe partners bringing you this year's Summit. Organisations that may be invited to be GS9 partners will come from research and innovation-intensive sectors with a demonstrable commitment to advancing gender equality in science and to promoting science as a driver for socioeconomic advancement.  Contact us about partnership.
