The EU agency GenderNet recently decided on grants for 13 international collaborations. Five of these projects have partners at KI. In total about SEK 16.6 million is granted to KI. The projects include sex-and-gender perspective in their respective subject areas.
GenderNet includes 16 organizations from 13 countries. The purpose of the EU agency is to strengthen transnational collaboration that integrates the sex-and-gender dimension into research and promotes gender equality through institutional change. A decision has now been made to finance 13 international collaboration projects within the GenderNet Plus Co-Fund. Ten of the collaborations that have been granted financing include Swedish participants, who will receive funding from the Swedish Research Council.
