Welcome to the R&I PEERS Newsletter!

R&I PEERS is a Horizon 2020 project, funded by the European Commission, with the mission of providing “pilot experiences for improving gender equality in research organisations.”

The R&I PEERS project aims to create and validate pilot experiences that disrupt gender-biased approaches and unconscious rules which limit participation by and careers for women in Research and Innovation. The R&I PEERS project promotes a concept of gender equality that can best be expressed as “women and men enjoy the same status and have equal opportunity to realize their full human potential to contribute to political, economic, social and cultural development, and to benefit fully from the results.”
