In the context of its mutual learning and capacity building activities the GENDERACTION project organized a series of webinars for Horizon 2020 National Contact Points (NCPs) in 2018. The webinars aimed at enhancing the capacities of NCPs in addressing the gender priorities in research and within the different Horizon 2020 thematic areas, taking into consideration the current work programme. In particular, participants had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the basic concepts related to sex, gender and gender equality, learn about the relevance of sex and gender through examples from specific H2020 thematic areas. In addition, using practical examples trainers showed how gender can be integrated in different sections of a H2020 proposal. Each presentation was followed by a Q&A session, allowing interaction with webinar participants.

The webinars have been designed with the active cooperation of NCP networks in an effort to provide support tailored to the different Horizon2020 thematic areas. The webinars have been organized in cooperation with gender experts from Yellow Window.

The feedback received has been very positive and project members are currently discussing the content of the 2019 webinars.

The recordings are available at the GENDERACTION website.
