Promoting comprehensive policies to end gender-based violence in research and higher education

Project Summary

GenderSAFE project will build on the results and tools developed in UniSAFE to support research and higher education institutions in setting up comprehensive policies to effectively counteract gender-based violence. Its overall objective is to contribute to building safe, inclusive, and respectful research and higher education.

This will be realised through building capacities, mutual learning and exchange, setting up instruments to monitor the uptake and content of Research Performing Organisation (RPO) policies and promoting uptake of policies at the level of the national authorities and Research Funding Organisations(RFOs).
