Ready for Dialogue
Conference on the Gender Dimension in Science and Research
dbb forum berlin, Germany
5th of NOVEMBER 2015
On 5 November 2015, 120 representatives of national and European associations, research institutions and research funding organisations supporting the integration of the gender dimension in science and research gathered together in Berlin to take part in the international conference “Ready for Dialogue”, which was initiated by the Essen College of Gender Research at the University of Duisburg-Essen and the European Platform of Women Scientists EPWS as European partner organisation. The aim was to discuss possibilities to integrate the gender dimension into science and research content in a more binding way and thus, to contribute to an improved use of the knowledge and innovation potential of the gender dimension for scientific impulses for further social changes in this manner.
Central point of discussion was the proposed initiation of a more intensive strategic exchange between the knowledge and action level, implementing, strengthening and developing existing knowledge- and action-oriented approaches in both areas in a more sustainable way and to link both levels to existing synergies. For additional information, please refer to our conference website www.ready-for-dialogue.de/EN.
The conference documentation, including a written documentation of the key arguments and ideas presented at the event, is now ready for download as PDF-file on the conference website under the heading “Conference Documentation”.
The documentation comprises the opening words of the project manager and the welcome addresses of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as the funding institution and the European Platform of Women Scientists EPWS as European partner organisation as well as the substantive presentations held by the four speakers in slightly abridged form including the speakers’ profiles.
