In tune with the ERC's mission and EU Commission goals, this workshop aims at creating a platform to showcase and discuss innovative approaches to address gender dimensions in research. Considering gender differences may add more value to research in some fields. The ultimate goal of the workshop is to raise awareness on how gender dimension, in the way research is designed, conducted and administered, influences the quality and usefulness of the results.
