Pathways for change: steps ahead


Session at UniSAFE's final conference in Namur, 22 November 2023.

This session was presented by Marcela Linková, Co-Chair of ERA Action 5 on inclusive gender equality implementation; Silvia Rueda, Advisory Member in the Cabinet of the Spanish Minister of Science and Innovation and Director of the Women and Science Unit; and Lut Mergaert, Research Director and Senior Consultant at Yellow Window. 

The session highlighted the broader perspectives on pathways to achieve a safe European Research Area, including developments under way of the ERA Action 5 on inclusive gender equality implementation, as well as a Spanish initiative taken within the Spanish Presidency of the EU to develop a certification system on victim-centred protection, and advances in ending gender-based violence in Spain. As UniSAFE has singled out challenges faced by higher education institutions and research organisations which call for further policymaking, the steps ahead for institutional change will be outlined at all levels, from EU to national and institutional policy and decision-making.
