The main aim of CHANGE is to support research performing organisations (RPOs) to design and implement gender equality plans. This will be achieved by involving key actors, called Transfer Agents (TAs), within each organisation who will together with the core consortium partners transmit co-produced gender equality knowledge inside their institutions.


EQUAL-IST project aims at introducing structural changes in research organizations to enhance gender equality within ICT (Information and Communications Technology) institutions by creating a basis for increasing the share of Gender in IST research.
