From July 5 to 7, 2023, the summer school "Breaking the Bias: Inspiring Diversity in R&I" took place in Athens, organized by Anita Thaler (IFZ) and Clemens Striebing (Fraunhofer) with dedicated international colleagues from the COST Action VOICES.

The Gendered Innovations training programme by the nexus Institute in cooperation with TU Berlin demonstrates how sex and gender analysis can be an applicable tool to various industries in order to unclose vital paths for a world recognized in its diversity. Anita Thaler provided the VITAPATCH case study to share insights about the background of "Gendered Innovations" as well as the application of participatory methods for adapting the concept.

When it comes to implementing Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) in research organisations many organisations still rather want to ‘fix the women’ than ‘fix the system’. The EU project CHANGE (2018-2022) aimed on this systemic level by using knowledge co-production to tackle specific organisational and country-specific challenges.

At the end of our project "Development of social gardening in Graz: Concepts and the relation to food justice" we invite you to an event on Wednesday, December 7th, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Festsaal of the Heilandskirche (Kaiser-Josef-Platz 9, 8010 Graz). Please register by tuesday, December 6th, 4 p.m., number of places are limited: david [punkt] steinwender at ifz [punkt] at.
