As part of the evaluation of gender equality certification/award schemes (CAS) in research and non-research institutions (WP4, task 4.2), coordinated by the Oxford Brookes University team, between May and July 2020, Marina Cacace and Giovanna Declich of K&I carried out 16 qualitative interviews to promoters and users of certification/award schemes Europe-wide, as well as gender experts.
The interviewees from Italy, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Portugal, and Estonia were consulted about the CAS they were involved in and their suggestions for a possible future European certification scheme for gender equality.
A synthetic report based on the evidences collected has been drafted to inform the Deliverable D4.2 “The architecture of a potential Europe-wide scheme on gender equality: key debates and considerations”.
