As part of the H2020 project ACT, Jagiellonian University and partners are  organising the 2nd international synergy conference to take place in ViRTUAL format on 11-12 February 2021.The purpose of this conference is to report on the contribution of the H2020 ACT project to advance gender equality in research and innovation in the EU. The approach developed by ACT is based on the concept of Community of Practice (CoP). ACT created, developed and supported eight CoPs, as well as a range of tools to help CoPs operate at institutional, inter-institutional, and EU-wide levels, and keep advancing best practice for gender equality in R&I.

The expected output from the conference will be recommendations to the Commission to adopt CoPs as a practical mechanism to advance gender equality in R&I, especially through Horizon Europe projects and programmes such as HRS4R.

The ACT Consortium invites to the Conference science and innovation leaders, decision-makers, researchers and practitioners ready to collaborate, co-create and co-produce gender equality in R&I.By participating in the Conference you will help establish how CoPs can deliver the EU mission of gender equality in research and innovation.
