Jul 13, 2022 | Blog, Events, Project news

The UniSAFE project will be represented at the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF2022) on Friday 15 July 2022. Organised by EuroScience, the conference offers the scientific community a platform for interdisciplinary and intersectional debate about scientific culture, scientific research and innovation, for and with society.

UniSAFE will present at the SS2.11 panel ‘A Way Forward To Increase Science Legitimacy By Eradicating Gender-Based Violence And Sexual Harassment From Universities’ on 15 July, 11:15-12:30. The aim of the panel is to explore how (social) science can “improve its role of being a transformative agent for societal change”, and how institutional structures can “be changed to foster diversity, equity and inclusion”, thereby addressing two of the core and cross-cutting questions of the conference.

Project partners Lut Mergaert (Yellow Window), Marcela Linková (Institute Of Sociology, Czech Academy Of Sciences) and Sofia Strid (Örebro University) will give three presentations, followed by space for questions, answers and reactions moderated by Vasia Madesi (Yellow Window).
