This Specific Support Action (SSA) aims to perform the preliminaries and preparations necessary to offer a seamless transition to a full ERA-NET in the field of women and science. The final goal is to coordinate the different national policies on the promotion of women in science and so eventually establish a European network of national policies on the promotion of Women in Science. Prior to establishing a functioning network, it is of great importance to intensify the cooperation and exchange of information at a strategic level between those responsible for the programmes in the field mentioned on the national and regional level. With the exchange of information on existing structures of national promotion, and the identification and definition of the probably different but also overlapping coverage and focus of each of the programmes of the partners, similarities and differences between the partners will have to be worked out and analysed. This analysis will provide the necessities for a profound benchmarking in the field. The recognition of good practice is an important goal in this process. This SSA also prepares the ERA-Net with regard to its future management and administrative structures. The naming of those responsible for the work packages of the future Coordination Action as well as the identification of experts in the field will be tasks and deliverables within the project. In addition, possible actions and necessary steps within the planned ERA-NET with a description of an adequate schedule will be outlined in order to set a basis for an immediate and smooth transition into the targeted project.
