Acting as a platform for the exchange of institutional practices and the transfer of knowledge between the consortium partners, Baltic Gender will work towards the establishment and implementation of Gender Equality Plans in its partner institutions. These plans play an important role in committing institutions to long-term approaches, realistic targets and concrete measures. The project will also establish practical schemes and innovative strategies that promote gender equality. Specific aims of the project are as following: to promote gender-balanced career advancement in Marine Science and Technology, to establish strategies for promoting a family-friendly working culture, to identify meaningful and effective structural changes in the partner institutions leading to an improvement of gender equality, to develop methodologies for the enactment of gender-sensitive marine research, to build competence and skills in gender sensitive teaching methods, to initiate gender focused training and mentoring in or across all partner institutions, to develop recommendations to guide the implementation of Gender Equality Plans.
