Integrating sex and gender analysis into research and innovation adds value to research and increases its societal relevance. It is thereby crucial to secure Europe’s leadership in science and technology, and support its inclusive growth.
To further strengthen the integration of sex and gender analysis into research and innovation, the European Commission convened an expert group to support these efforts. This report highlights the results of the expert group and contains definitions of terms and methods relating to sex, gender and intersectional analysis, interdisciplinary case studies displaying how to integrate the gender dimension into various fields of research and innovation, as well as concrete policy recommendations. The material presented provides guidance for the Horizon Europe framework programme and seeks to contribute to the achievement of the UN SDGs.
