EU Award for Gender Equality Champions

On 14 July, the Commission launched the EU Award for Gender Equality Champions, a new prize that recognises academic and research organisations that have achieved outstanding results in the implementation of gender equality measures. This new Prize scheme intends to advance inclusive gender equality plans and policies in the framework of the new European Research Area (ERA). It will complement and boost the requirement to have Gender Equality Plans (GEP) as an eligibility criterion for higher education and research organisations applying to Horizon Europe, the EU’s programme for research and innovation.
