  • There are strong calls for additional policy intervention at the highest EU-level and for EC leadership to carry this policy momentum to implementation at national and institutional levels across all relevant areas of scientific endeavour.
  • There is a recurring call for funding opportunities to specifically target gender issues in research, from training of researchers on the gender dimension, to creating academic professorial posts in the area and facilitating cross-sector collaborations.
  • There is a shared view that action has to be taken by all stakeholders and key players, spanning all aspects of research with financia
