Gender Summit 9 Europe

Gender-based research, innovation and development for sustainable economies and societal wellbeing.

"I welcome the Summit’s objective to discuss how gender continues to be addressed in Horizon 2020, as well as how to further gender mainstreaming in my 3 priority areas of open innovation, open science and open to the world. The future of Europe’s knowledge economy will be entirely dependent on women reaching their full potential in STEM careers. My services have therefore created an Action Plan on Gender Equality in research and innovation, for implementation of the Council Conclusions of 1 December 2015, which addressed gender imbalances in research institutions and decision making.” Commissioner Moedas, Research, Science and Innovation, European Commission 

The Gender Summit is a platform for evidence-based and consensus-focused dialogue between scientists, policy makers, gender scholars, and key stakeholder groups in science endeavours. The Gender Summit Europe 2016 coincides with important policy developments in Europe and globally that look towards science knowledge and technological innovation to create a better future for all.  Significant here are: the new EU Gender Action Plan and Horizon 2020; the UN Sustainable Development Goals; the African Union’s Africa 2063 and Continental Education Strategy Africa agenda; and the OECD vision for Inclusive Innovation and Creating Our Common Future through Science and Technology.  Therefore this year’s Gender Summit opens up dialogue on how an understanding of sex/gender issues in research and innovation can also ensure sustainable and effective development.


  1. New research on when, why and how sex-gender issues impact on quality of research, innovation, and development outputs and outcomes
  2. How gender continues to be addressed in Horizon 2020
  3. How to mainstream gender into the EU new vision for ERA of Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the World
  4. How the global policy agendas to make the world a better place for all can benefit from incorporating scientific understanding of sex-gender issues
  5. New efforts to develop reliable, and region and sector sensitive, performance metrics and gender equality indicators and statistics, and to integrate them into research, innovation, and development policy actions
  6. The contributions made by the Gender Summit platform, and its global community of experts and practitioners, to advance gender-sensitive and responsive research, innovation, and development.

The European Commission is organizing a Conference entitled ‘Steel and Coal: a New Perspective’ at DG RTD on 28 March 2019 in Brussels. After a European political introduction, the first keynote speeches will deal with Steel and Coal in a forward-looking perspective. The speakers will address the themes of architecture, steel 4.0, energy, electric mobility, innovation, technology and socio-economic challenges. The Conference will offer the opportunity to discuss the preliminary results of the Expert Group on Monitoring and Assessment of RFCS, the Research Fund for Coal and Steel. Stakeholders will also have the possibility to give their opinions on these results. The last session of the Conference will explore the issues of steel in the global value chains and of coal regions in transition. Finally, the opportunities offered by RFCS, Horizon 2020 and the upcoming Horizon Europe and Innovation Fund will be presented in the conclusions. Due to the limited size of the meeting room and for security reasons, the conference will be by invitation only. For more information, please contact Dr Domenico Rossetti di Valdalberο, Deputy Head of Unit ‘Coal and Steel’ in DG RTD. The speaker’s presentations will be made available here after the Conference.
