Gender Equality Plan in the National Technical University of Athens
Both gender equality and the opening to inclusiveness issues constitute priorities in Horizon Europe.
A new eligibility criterion to get access to Horizon Europe funding for public bodies, research organisations and higher education establishments will be required, starting in 2022. This criterion is linked with the obligation of the partners to have a gender equality plan (GEP) in place.
The National Technical University of Athens, having considered the utmost importance of this issue and in order to keep up with the requirements of the European Commission, has recently adopted the provisions of the Article 33 of the Greek Law 4589/29-01-2019. By virtue of this Law, the establishment of a Gender Equality Council (G.E.C.) became mandatory for the Greek Universities.
As per 21st of October 2020 the Senate of the National Technical University has approved the constitution of a nine-member Gender Equality Council.
