Monitoring progress towards gender equality in the Sixth Framework Programme - Citizens and governance in a knowledge-based society: summary report

Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

A series of gender monitoring studies were launched during FP6 (five lots each covering several activity areas, a separate study for DG INFSO and a coordination contract) designed to monitor progress towards gender equality and gender relevance awareness in FP6. The studies examine both the participation of women in FP6 activities and the gender dimension of the research content, the aim being to assess the success of current gender mainstreaming strategies and to provide recommendations for future activities in this field. This executive summary concerns the results of the Gender Monitoring Study for the thematic area Citizens and Governance in a knowledge-based society. The study team acknowledge the significant improvement made in terms of progress towards gender equality in comparison to FP5 but strongly emphasise the need to maintain and re-inforce these efforts going forward. The team underline the need to ensure availability of gender experts at conception, preparation and implementation of the Framework Programme and recommend a continuation of the Gender Action Plans.
