– initiate a national discourse on gender equality in research and development;
– to contribute to the international discourse by providing tools and comparative analyzes.
The project initiates institutional change in seven innovative gender equality institutions in the Mediterranean basin, including research organizations, research funding organizations and a network of universities. The TARGET approach goes beyond the formal adoption of a gender equality policy, focusing on an iterative and reflective process towards ensuring equality at the institutional level and strengthening a community of practice to support gender equality within the institution.
