In this paper, we have taken a closer look at good practice examples for the implementation of gender equality in R&D organizations in nine European countries. With the intention of achieving more gender equality in R&D, we aim to establish what works and what does not. Based on the entries of the GENDERA online database, we have been able to identify different factors of success, but also limitations both for methodological reasons and due to deficits in the implementation process. The paper argues that good practices are characterized by overcoming existing limitations in the implementation process and thus contributing to more gender equality in R&D.
