Cardiff University joins the Horizon 2020 Project CALIPER

(PRESS RELEASE) THESSALONIKI, 14-Feb-2022 — /EuropaWire/ — The CALIPER consortium welcomes the Academia Europaea Cardiff Knowledge Hub, hosted by Cardiff University.

Founded in 1988, Academia Europaea (AE) has a thriving membership of almost 5,000 world-leading researchers, mainly from across Europe but also worldwide. Amongst them are 72 Nobel laureates. Academia Europaea operates through a network of hubs in Barcelona, Bergen, Budapest, Cardiff, Munich, Tbilisi and Wroclaw. The Cardiff Hub opened in 2016 and is hosted by Cardiff University.

The AE Cardiff Hub promotes collaboration and exchange of ideas to connect research and scholarship with policymaking in Europe and the wider world. This is facilitated by an exciting programme of events and effective outreach.

For the CALIPER project, the Academia Europaea Cardiff Knowledge Hub will be working closely with the Young Academy of Europe to engage the Research and Innovation sector with the project’s activities. Their role includes the support of CALIPER’s dissemination activities and the production of ‘role model’ videos which aim to raise awareness and generate debate about gender inequalities in STEM fields.

General information
CALIPER project supports seven (7) RPOs and two (2) RFOs in nine countries across Europe (Belgium, Croatia, Italy, Georgia, Greece, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey), to design, implement, evaluate, and expand their Gender Equality Plans (GEPs), and engages the local Innovation Hubs to transfer the gained knowledge beyond academia. The project goal is to make research organizations more gender equal by increasing the number of female researchers in STEM, improving their careers prospects, and integrating a gender dimension in research.
