INITIATIVES

NOVA University Lisbon contributes to tackle the SDG5 with initiatives including, but not limited to:

  • The SPEAR Project

NOVA University Lisbon is part of a European consortium within the scope of an H2020 project under the theme Gender Equality, Supporting and Implementing Plans for Gender Equality in Academia and Research (SPEAR).

The aim of the project is to develop institutional changes to increase women's participation in Research and Innovation and to improve their career prospects. The main objectives of the study are to carry out impact assessments/audits of procedures and practices to identify gender inequalities, identify and implement innovative strategies to correct any type of discrimination, and set goals and monitor progress through indicators.

At FCT NOVA there are 698 job posts, with a porpotion of 51% men vs 49% women. Regarding gender equality, the salaries, employability and career progression, are, in general, in an egalitarian proportion, however, there are still some categories with greater gender inequality. Collecting this information consistently is a priority for all NOVA's academic units, and will be part of the SPEAR project.
