The aim of the GenderTime project is to identify and implement the best systemic approach to increase the participation and career advancement of women researchers in selected institutions where self-tailored action plans are implemented. Institutions involved in GenderTime are intentionally very different in terms of size, discipline, history, etc. in order to experiment in various situations and to create a synergy among scientific partners. The plans involve activities as recruitment, retention and promotion policies, supporting work-life balance measures, updated management and research standards, supporting policies for dual careers-couple, etc. To guarantee the real implementation of structural change in each Institution a central role has been assumed by the transfer agents.
Work Packages: The work is divided into seven workpackages: WP1 Coordination, WP2 Implementation Process Management, WP3 Monitoring Action Plans, WP4 Knowledge Transfer, WP5 Independant Evaluation, WP6 Methodology for structural Change – Designing a toolbox, WP7 Dissemination.
