Call for applications: Designing and Implementing Gender Equality Plans 

Summer School at Central European University, Budapest 

Date: 5-9 July 2021 


Gender Equality Plans (GEP) are a precondition for research and higher education institutions to apply for EC Horizon Europe research funding starting from the 2021 funding cycle. In the framework of the Horizon 2020 project Gender Equality Academy, CEU offers a summer school course for participants from higher education institutions, aiming to provide the basic skills and knowledge to develop and implement GEPs. In line with the mission of Central European University, the course places a strong, but not exclusive, emphasis on bringing together professionals working in higher education in post-communist countries in Central and Eastern Europe and aims to contribute to extending the network of gender equality professionals working in higher education institutions in the region.

Application deadline: 15 March 2021. Applicants will be notified about the outcome of their application by 7 April. 


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is possible that the course will be offered in an online format. A final decision about the format will be made by 15 May, 2021. 

In case the course is delivered on-site, 10 scholarships (travel and accommodation) will be available for candidates from the Central and Eastern European region on a competitive basis.  


We encourage tandems to apply from the same institution, as we envision a more efficient implementation of GEPs if more than one person per institution is trained in this area, but it is not a mandatory requirement.
