The second INIA network event
took place online from March-May 2021 with a series of guest lectures and workshops. Although we had hoped to meet in person, this was not possible due to COVID related travel restrictions. The lectures were spread out over a longer period in an attempt to avoid online burnout. A programme for the event is available here. The INIA network was also present in a panel at the DCU online conference: Intersex 2021 – A vision for the future. For more information about this event, please visit our Outreach page.
The first INIA network event
was scheduled to take place in Dublin, Ireland in November to coincide with the DCU sponsored conference: Intersex 2020: A vision for the future. However, due to COVID, the conference was postponed until April 2021. As a result, we brought forward the second INIA network event which was scheduled to be an online conference offered in February 2021. Instead, we offered a series of guest lectures to the INIA researchers during the week of November 16-20, 2021. A program for the event is available here.
Virtual Event – 16th November 2020
The ERCEA Scientific Department organised a conference on “Sex and Gender Dimension in Frontier Research”.
In tune with the ERC’s mission and EU Commission goals, this workshop aimed at creating a platform to showcase and discuss innovative approaches to address gender dimensions in research. Considering gender differences is essential to research in some fields and can be of great benefit in many others. The ultimate goal of the workshop was to raise awareness on how gender dimensions, in the way research is designed, conducted and administered, influence the quality and usefulness of the results.
The conference took place on Monday 16 November as a virtual event.
