Project duration: 01.10.2022 - 30.09.2026

Project lead: Dr. Andrea Löther, Dr. Lena Weber, Dr. Anke Lipinsky

Project team: Rahel Bleile

Funded by: Horizon Europe, funding number 101058537

Project description:

The European project INSPIRE aims to develop a sustainable center that develops innovative, inclusive and research-based gender equality policies and tools for the academic world. It will bring together high-level researchers, gender equality experts and practioners to pool their ideas and resources to design new ways of gender equality policy.

The subproject of INSPIRE, located at CEWS, aims to conduct methodological research in the field of monitoring gender equality plans. It will be examined whether a web survey, as a reactive method of data collection, is better suited for the monitoring of gender equality plans, or the non-reactive method of web scraping. In addition, a concept for monitoring gender equality plans will be developed.

Materials/ Activities:

Mid-October of 2022, the project partners met in Barcelona for a kick-off meeting to learn about the project and plan future activities.
