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.
For the XXX edition of Futuro Remoto, the team of GENOVATE@UNINA has involved a large audience of visitors on a reflection on the gender dimension in the world of research and innovation.
The interactive exhibition, held on 7-9 October, was based on information on GENOVATE's actions and the presentation of the Gender Observatory on University and Research at the University of Naples Federico II: the first shown through three roll-up panels, the second inviting the audience to associate comic book baloons in which male and female characters had fallen in work situations or discussed about their respective careers.
The first UNINA Gender Observatory on University and Research was established on 18th May 2016. The activity of the Observatory will be disseminated by the Gender Observatory web site (http://www.og.unina.it/), which was realized in the last few months.
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.
