In 2020, in the framework of the Horizon 2020 project CALIPER, analysis on the institutional state of gender equality was conducted. Short summary of the analysis is available here.

The internal assessment followed the three ERA priorities on Gender Equality and examined them in the context of specific activity/service areas (e.g., human resources, institutional governance, institutional communication, research, teaching, student services, transfer to market, sexual harassment,  intersectionality) inside FER. The assessment depicts the situation based on data collected from the previous three years (2017-2018,2018-2019, 2018-2020). Researchers carried out the research activities (surveys, interviews, focus groups, desk research), involving different stakeholders (high-, and middle-management level, professors, researchers, etc.), and collected their qualitative and quantitative data. The report on the performed internal analysis is available here.

In addition, we also conducted an analysis in order to investigate the external conditions such as the legal and cultural framework and the existing national innovation ecosystems in Croatia and identify where gender imbalances occur, why they are created and by which factors they are influenced. To perform this external assessment a quadruple helix approach was adopted, by involving stakeholders belonging to the following sectors: academia and universities; industry and business, government and public sector, and civil society. The report on the performed external analysis is available here.
