SPEAR'S Final Conference

As we approach the end of the project implementation, we want to celebrate together the efforts and achievements of our partners in fostering and promoting gender equality in research and academia through the development of Gender Equality Plans (GEP).


We invite GE practitioners, researchers, innovation leaders and policymakers to join us for SPEAR'S final conference on Wednesday, March 1st, 2023! We are organising a semi-hybrid event. The physical session is hosted in Den Blå Hal, Copenhagen, Denmark. It is possible to attend the opening and the first session online as it will be web-streamed.

The theme of the conference is: ‘The future of (gender) equality, inclusivity and democratic values in European Academia: Practices, prerequisites, pushback and prospectives’.

Increasingly, GE is understood as part of a broader perspective which must necessarily include and integrate a wider understanding of inclusivity. Furthermore, an expanded concept of equality – GE+ – is a transversal issue in democracy and sustainability.  The conference will highlight the achievements of SPEAR and our sister initiatives and explore their impact on the wider context of gender equality, inclusivity and democracy – and indeed how these topics and actors can mutually enhance and strengthen each other across Europe and beyond.


Registration for the Final Conference is free but mandatory. Reserve your ticket here before February 14th, 2023.
