Title of presentation: GENERA in Physics and for Physics: status quo and future
Teresa Montaruli 14Sept2017

Abstract:
GENERA is a H2020 Project about measuring, monitoring and advancing gender equality in Physics Research & Funding Organisations.  Thirteen Organisations, including the University of Geneva as a beneficiary and CERN as an observer, in 9 countries benefit of the support of GENERA in introducing actions targeted to ultimately improve the number of women in Physics. Eleven of such Organisations are updating their Gender Equality Plan (GEP).  GENERA status, deliverables, future, and the impact of GENERA on UNIGE will be discussed.
