CERN, ESO and Nordforsk join forces to organise the Gender in Physics Day (GiPD) event on 27 January 2017, at the CERN Globe of Science and Innovation. This one-day conference aim is to look at innovative activities promoting gender equality, discuss gender-oriented policies and best practices in the European Research Area as well as the importance of building a solid network.

The conference is organized in the framework of the EU project GENERA (Gender Equality Network in the European Research Area), funded under the H2020 framework. Various Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) and Research Funding Organisations (RFOs) are partners in the project, and CERN, ESO and Nordforsk are observers. They will contribute to the topic by focusing on and analysing the situation regarding Gender Equality in Intergovernmental Organizations of a similar nature.

The conference will include a series of overview and plenary talks, followed by workshops and round-table discussions on specific topics and is aimed at participants ranging from junior and senior researchers, to management level personnel, policy makers and various stakeholders.
