Conference Description:

he 2nd European Gender Summit - EGS 2012 will be held at the European Parliament, Brussels on the 29th and 30th of November. The theme of the conference is Aligning Agendas for Excellence. As a high-level platform dedicated to promoting research evidence and consensus-seeking dialogue involving top-level leaders in science and policy and gender research scholars and experts, the Summit is dedicated to supporting and advancing excellence and effectiveness of research and innovation at all levels.

The EGS2012 will demonstrate innovative initiatives in the area of gender equality introduced by leading science institutions, such as the League for European Research Universities (LERU), German Research Foundation (DFG), European Research Council (ERC), National Science Foundation (NSF) and European Commission (EC), designed to confront common challenges at national, EU and international levels.

Distinguished scientists will discuss opportunities for advancing excellence through greater awareness of the role of gender as a dimension of research content and as an important driver to promote mobility of talent and knowledge. Building on the success of the Manifesto for Integrated Action on the Gender Dimension in Research and Innovation, which has been attracting around 800 signatures per month from scientists, the 2012 Gender Summit will include a consultative process to develop a new Gender Equality Standard in science, which would encourage organizations and projects to meet agreed criteria, standards and recommendations for addressing common gender problems in research and innovation.
