The GENOVATE Community consist of seven GENOVATE partner institutions; the GENOVATE International Advisory Board; key strategic collaborators and stakeholders and the general public. It is a mechanism designed to facilitate meaningful knowledge exchange across the community at local, national and international levels within each of the partner institutions’ countries, across Europe and globally.
The toolkit with aim to help create more gender equal academia gets attention both in the university’s newsletter and on the website.
- The GENOVATE project involves integration of a gender perspective in processes, working methods and decision-making in academia. The toolkit can be used in any context, in innovation systems and in groups at different levels, says Ylva Fältholm, Professor of Human Work Science at Luleå University of Technology.
The LTU newsletter reaching out to all university staff and alumni makes an interview with Paula Wennberg about ongoing gender mainstreaming projects. Gender Contact Point is one of these examples with aim to enable collaboration between researchers and companies as well as to increase the visibility of the university’s gender research.
- Companies and other actors in our community who are interested in integrating a gender perspective in their organisations and operations will have easy access to the competence they are looking for through Gender Contact Point based at Luleå University of Technology.
Anna Degerman, Development Director of Luleå Municipality and Member of LTU Advisory Board, is a columnist in a local newspaper this week. She reflects on gender equality and the obvious fact that women and men should have equal opportunities to shape both the society and their own lives. - This is an issue that I believe is the most important factor for the growth in Luleå and our county.
The Vice-Chancellor of Luleå University of Technology highlights in the newsletter that we broke the pattern of male dominance among university’s adjunct professors by appointing two female adjunct professors (five appointed in total) in November 2016. This is one of the outcomes of the ongoing gender equality work at the university.
The project Gender Contact Point (GCP) will contribute to deeper interaction between academia, industry and other community actors by creating an innovative collaborative environment for practical gender mainstreaming. The second workshop with researchers and IT companies was carried out on October 28, 2016. The project will enable the region's businesses and other stakeholders to benefit from the results of research, learning and knowledge in gender, diversity and innovation. Today we discuss among other things how we could utilise the results of GENOVATE in the GCP process.
At this 9th meeting we discussed the GENOVATE achievements and the advisory board members presented how GENOVATE project results will be utilized in their working places and organisations after the end of the project. The meeting also reflected on the organization of the project and processes and what we can learn from GENOVATE for future projects.
The meeting was concluded with short information about the final GENOVATE conference that will take place on November 2-3, 2016 at Thon Hotel EU in Brussels. Two of LTU’s advisory board members will join the Brussels conference: Cathrine Norberg, Dean of Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and Anders Lundkvist, CEO of Centre for Distance-spanning Technology.
