Six scientific organizations across Europe have committed into a process of structural change: to improve the working environment and dynamics with the objective of overcoming the factors that impede women’s career in research.

Along the way, these brave organizations will receive the support of three technical partners that will help them by sharing their knowledge and innovative tools: participatory gender audit methodology, gender budgeting, gender awareness training for human resources managers.

The Genis Lab approach is experimental and active: the aim is to activate a process that involves every area (managers, researchers, administrative staff) of organizations into discussing, identifying obstacles and defining strategies to overcome them. These strategies will be put to the test through an action plan that will last almost three years: enough time to measure results, evaluate outcomes and adjust the plan to better meet emerging needs. Partners will share their experiences and sharpen their instruments through an ongoing discussion that will take place in the virtual labs.

The Genis Lab project is a support action - type project funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme. It will last from 2011 to 2014.
