The present deliverable firstly briefly expounds the timelines and concept of the final event (16 - 18 October 2017, Paris). For each of the main sequences of the event, proceedings in forms of abstracts and Powerpoint presentations have been compiled. In annex, the full program of the event.

D2.2 First Gender Equality Report (METU)
The First Gender Equality Report is based on the individual reports submitted by seven out of the eight partner institutions of the project during December 2014. The objective of this report is to understand the state of affairs related to gender equality and equality matters by examining available data, information and policies in partner institutions.

D3.2 Report on the Pilot study on gender culture in the academia and guidelines for gender equality (UA)
written by Jolien Voorspoels & Petra Meier
Building gender friendly work environments is the core message of work package 3 wherein the gender equality culture surveys takes on a prominent role. The pilot survey has been carried out at first at University of Antwerp in October/November 2014. The first results are presented in this report.

D3.4 Signed EGERA Antwerp Charter on Gender Sensitive Communication in and by academic institutions & EGERA Recommendations to prevent and fight sexual harassment in the academia (UA) 

D4.4 Collected good practices in introducing gender in curricula (SKU)
The report provides a review of good practices and practices with potential in mainstreaming gender knowledge in academic curricula, compiled by six universities in six different countries participating in the EGERA project. Collecting good practices will help to reveal the lack of gender analysis in specific disciplines within these universities. Given the large variation of background of these universities, this collected information is meant as inspiration for other institutions by showing how gender can be integrated in curricula in different ways and by elaborating on strengths and weaknesses.

D.4.5. Gender Training Implementation Report

This report entails a detailed review of the activities on gender equality training implemented by all partners during the course of the EGERA project. It is based upon the gender equality training plans, the regular training updates provided by the partners and the information provided by the partners for the annual project evaluations coordinated by the CESIS team under WP8.

D5.3 EGERA Charter for Gender Sensitive Governance in Research and Higher Education Institutions
Research and higher education institutions remain characterized by
strongly embedded gender inequalities, such as lower access of women to senior and decision-making
posltions, gender-biased practices in assessing academic performance as well as gender biases and
stereotypes in framing the standards of research and academic excellence.
This Charter therefore aims at raising the awareness of these issues and to provide an encouragement to take action, by outlining guiding principles to enhance gender equality in the governance of research and higher education institutions. Along with research, educational activities and knowledge circulation to society - the "societal impact" of research - , are at stake.

D.5.4. Fighting Gender Biases as a Mark of RRI

The EGERA community of practices, has foreseen the drafting of the present working paper, which contains a summary of the main challenges to be addressed when fighting gender biases as a mark of RRI, a typology of the different practices implemented in the European Research Area with regards to the recruitment and appraisal of women in research organizations, and a selection of “good” practices or practices with potential for inspiring further actions in other organizations.

D6.1 Report on Mapping & Critical assessment of existing tools for including gender in research (UAB)
written by Montserrat Rifà-Valls, Maribel Ponferrada & Laura Duarte
This report provides a critical cartography of the main instruments available at the European Research Area with the aim of promoting gender in research, and focusing on the analysis of content and methodologies of scientific projects from a gender perspective. After the process of locating and assessing these instruments, the report proposes the most appropriate tools for strengthening gender in research, and simultaneously, it identifies the significant gaps in the content of current proposals.

D6.3 Criteria for the selection of good practices of Gender Sensitive Research (UAB)
This report proposes selected criteria of good practices to encourage and promote gender perspective, and gender sensitive research among the EGERA partner institutions. The document was discussed through collaborative work within the EGERA project, and in particular, during the 3rd Workshop Gender Perspective in Research held on January 18-20, 2016 at UAB.

D6.4 Database of good practices of Gender Sensitive Research (UAB) 
This reports document includes the definition of good practices in gender sensitive research, the methodology applied in the collection process, a summary of the good practices with a brief assessment of each of them, the completed sheets received, and the template. The general and specific criteria for the selection were already stated in the deliverable "D.6.3. Recommendations on the inclusion of Gender in Research and Criteria for the Selecction of good practices for Gender Sensitive Research".

D7.2 Project information sheet (UoV)

D7.3 EGERA Website (UoV)

D7.4, 7.6, 7.7 Reports on dissemination activities (1st report) (2nd report) (final report) (UoV)
Dissemination activities, thoroughly listed in section 3 of this deliverables, include conferences, workshops, seminars, awareness-rising sessions, information sessions on the project, as well as paper presentation and panels in international conferences. All audiences targeted by EGERA as for communication and dissemination, including students, researchers, non-academic staff, policy makers or agents, the press and the public at large, have been attained, although to different extent.

D7.5 Structural Change Toolkit (UoV) 
The overarching objective of the toolkit is to provide research performing and higher education institutions with valid instruments for the assessment of gender inequalities and discriminations, the promotion and appraisal of women in research institutions, gender- sensitive governance and evaluation and the mainstreaming of gender knowledge across disciplinary fields. Fostering structural change processes towards gender equality in academic institutions requires measuring and analyzing inequalities in different contexts and at different levels, designing and implementing appropriate actions as well as monitoring and evaluating their outcome. The toolkit thus aims to facilitate knowledge transfer and transferability from lessons learnt in the frame of the EGERA project.

D8.1. Assessment of the kick-off phase of EGERA (CESIS)
The assessment of the kick-off phase of EGERA bases on a set of tools that have been designed and implemented throughout the first year of duration of the project (2014). The activities of monitoring and evaluation developed during the kick-off phase concerned three of the four major tasks of workpackage ‘Monitoring & Evaluation’:

  • The Gender Equality Action Plans’ (GEAP) design evaluation
  • The monitoring of the operationalization of the Project
  • The monitoring of the implementation of the Project

The structure of this report follows closely this model and end with some conclusive remarks where strong points and potential pitfalls and deviations are identified.

D8.2 First Monitoring & Evaluation Report

The First Monitoring & Evaluation Report of EGERA bases on a set of tools that have been
designed and implemented throughout the first 18 months of duration of the project.
Constituting the first of a set of three monitoring and evaluation reports, this document
includes, updates and reshapes the Assessment of the kick-off phase of EGERA (deliverable
D.8.1) issued in December 2014 (Month 12).
