CALIPER Project First Press Release

The EU-funded CALIPER project intends to support the transformation of research institutions to more gender-equal entities by increasing the number of women researchers in STEM, enhancing their carrier perspectives and adding a gender dimension in research. The project will engage regional and national innovation environments in active synergies with external stakeholders. It aims at a universal methodology that supports gender equality on a permanent base and avoids gender discrimination in scientific institutions.

Yaşar University is the member of the CALIPER project consortium which consists of 7 Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) and 2 Research Funding Organisations (RFOs) and also includes 2 SMEs undertaking project coordination (ViLabs) and the scientific management (Smart Venice) and a professional association (Young Academy of Europe) to expand the project results.
