Gender in Physics Day

CERN, ESO and NordFosk joined forces to organise the Gender in Physics Day (GiPD) in January 2017 at the Globe of Science and Innovation. The one-day conference provided an opportunity to look at innovative activities promoting gender equality and to discuss gender-oriented policies and best practices in the European Research Area as well as the importance of building a solid network. This was the fourth GiPD to be held globally, organised in the framework of the EU project GENERA, funded by the Horizon 2020.
