Gender equality is a key issue in modern society which affects all aspects of life, from labour and the economy to health, education, and domestic life. One of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals is to “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”, reflecting the global importance of gender equality.

 At MechSustInd we aim to nurture gender balance by ensuring equal opportunities across the network for participation, mobility, and training. MechSustInd’s contribution to achieve gender balance during the execution of the Actions, as one of COST Programme’s policies, is as follows:

  • The Action Chair and Vice Chair, Dr. Evelina Colacino and Prof. Lucia Maini, are female researchers. 
  • The Core Group of the Action are gender balanced, close to the 50%-50% target foreseen by the European Commission. 
  • Male researchers are more represented as critical mass of the Action and within the Working Groups. 
  • The participants in the Activities of STSM were mostly female researchers, whereas in Trainings Schools the participation is more gender balanced. 

Taking this statistical data into account (see pie charts below), MechSustInd will continue to make all efforts to achieve better gender equality ratios.
