Gender equality in research and innovation

Through activities focused on gender equality, we at the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic strive to remove barriers that restrict the assertion of human talent and abilities in the field of research, development and innovation. At the same time, our goal is to support research projects that – in addition to economic or environmental impacts – also ask themselves questions about their social relevance. We strive to ensure that publicly funded research and innovation also address the issues of diversity, inclusion or social justice of research impacts,  thus having a positive impact on society as a whole – men, women or other groups. Through our activities in these areas, we join leading European agencies and participate in harmonizing the conditions for providing support in the European Research Area.

Exhibition: Integration of gender dimension in the content of research and innovation

The exhibition highlights the importance of integrating the gender dimension into research and innovation. Using specific examples from the fields of energy, medicine, robotics, transport or information technology, it shows that taking into account the role of sex and gender in research practice leads to safer, more exploited or more market-relevant research results.

The exhibition was created by a team from the Technische Universität Wien under the GEECCO project in which TA CR takes part.

The complete exhibition can be viewed HERE.
