Abstract

GenPORT – An internet portal for sharing knowledge an inspiring collaborative action on gender and science is a developing online community of practitioners, served by an internet portal and made up of organisations and individuals working across the globe for gender equality and excellence in science, technology or innovation.

GenPORT covers all sciences - natural and social sciences, and humanities. GenPORT offers an arena for organisations and individuals to showcase and access the world’s best research resources, practical materials, policy briefings, experiences, and much more. Constantly evolving online information and services will be shaped by the activities and contributions of community members.

Constantly evolving online information and services are shaped by the activities and contributions of the portal’s community members. Sharing resources on a global internet platform makes users prominent and visible to a large international expert community in the field of gender and science, and allows them to shape the portal and its contents. GenPORT also enables users to tailor resources on gender and science to their own needs, and to make them more easily accessible and searchable. The creation of the online community offers a fast track to experience sharing, and supports continuing policy and practical learning in pursuit of good practices in gender equality.

GenPORT is funded under the 7th Framework Programme. In the framework of the project GESIS cooperates with Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Spain), Portia (UK), Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini (Italy), Matej Bel University (Slovakia) and Örebro University (Sweden).
