Supporting and Implementing Plans for Gender Equality in Academia and Research
At the beginning of January 2019, the University of Rijeka commenced the implementation of a project named “Supporting and Implementing Plans for Gender Equality in Academia and Research” (SPEAR).
The consortium of the project worth a total of 3 million euros consists of 11 partners from 9 European countries coordinated by the University of Southern Denmark. These include Uppsala University (Sweden), RWTH Aachen University (Germany), the non-profit organization Europa Media Ltd. (Hungary), the research institute JOANNEUM RESEARCH Forschungsgesellschaft mbH, South-West University “Neofit Rilski” (Bulgaria), Plovdiv University “Paisii Hilendarski” (Bulgaria), Vilnius University (Lithuania), Vytautas Magnus University (Lithuania), NOVA University Lisbon (Portugal) and the University of Rijeka (Croatia). An advisory group representing key gender equality stakeholders is affiliated with the consortium. The project runs for four years and is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 “Science with and for Society” (SwafS) program.
By participating in the project, the University of Rijeka substantiates its strategic commitment and duty as a responsible and socially sensitive public stakeholder, thereby creating an encouraging environment that deplores any form of inequality in academia.
