The UniSAFE Community
UniSAFE offers an excellent opportunity for universities and research organisations intent on developing effective policies and measures to combat gender-based violence! In its first stage, the project has gathered 45 research performing organisations to join in a community.
Participating organisations will be provided with first-hand information, as well as specific support from expert partners, to adapt the knowledge to their own processes and structures.
To ensure that the final tools developed are fully adapted to the end-users’ needs, UniSAFE uses a participatory approach, involving stakeholders and end-users throughout the whole process.
The first community of 45 research performing organisations will participate in:
- Running a survey on gender-based violence among all their staff and students (January – April 2022).
- Sharing their organisation’s existing policies and measures to combat gender-based violence.
- A smaller selection of organisations will participate in an in-depth analysis.
Other universities and research organisations will be sought out to join the community to participate in the following activities:
- Co-designing tools
- Testing state-of-the-art tools, providing feedback
- Taking part in pilot trainings and in mutual exchange workshops
- Actively engaging in the community of practice, exchanging, and learning from many other European research organisations!

In turn, the organisations commit to obtaining Ethics approvals from their institutional and/or national Ethics Committees, as applicable.
