E-discussions on key GEDII Project Results
Join us for three online discussions on key GEDII Project Results
Measuring Research Performance 7 June 2018 13:00 – 15:00 CET/Brussels
Gender Diversity Index 12 June 2018 11:00 – 13:00 CET/Brussels
Sensor based data for gender research 20 June 2018 13:00 – 15:00 CET/Brussels
These online discussions will focus on three main aspects of the research undertaken within the
e-Discussion on Measuring Research Performance (June 7th, 2018 13:00-15:00 CET)
The GEDII project carried out a survey across 16 European countries, capturing 1357
individual responses distributed over 159 R&D teams. The overall design of this research
project is unique in that survey responses at the team level are combined with established
performance measures, i.e. bibliometric publication counts retrieved from Web of Science.
This online discussion will address the main results of the survey as well as discussing
alternatives to existing performance measures from a gender perspective.
e-Discussion on Gender Diversity Index (June 12th, 2018 11:00-13:00 CET)
The GEDII team has developed a composite indicator that captures gendered processes
within research teams: the Gender Diversity Index. During this online discussion we aim to
elaborate on its potential to become a useful resource for researchers, equality officers and
policy-makers. What are the next steps?
e-Discussion on Sensor-based data for gender research (June 20th, 2018 13:00-15:00)
Research has revealed gender differences in non-verbal behavior within interactions and
conversational styles. Status and gender matter during interactions. Sensor technology and
computational approaches are rapidly evolving, potentially allowing for the detection and
measurement of these behavioral cues. This online discussion brings together researchers
working with sensor-based data in order to discuss current possibilities and challenges for
the social sciences in general and gender research in particular.
Online discussion coordinated by Jörg Müller (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Where and when?
The discussion will be hosted by GenPORT (http://www.genderportal.eu/groups). Contributions
are solely text-based postings in the online discussion forum.
Experts have been invited to initiate the discussion on the indicated date and stay online for
approximately two hours. Although the online discussion will remain open indefinitely afterwards,
the main activity is scheduled to happen during this specified time slot.
How to participate?
The online discussions will be available to everybody via the web. In order to actively participate
and post contributions, registration (http://www.genderportal.eu) on the GenPORT platform and
subscription of the corresponding discussion group is required.
