The UniSAFE Community
UniSAFE gathers a community of universities and research organisations intent on developing effective policies and measures to combat gender-based violence. 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.
The UniSAFE Community
In the project’s first stage, 46 universities and research organisations have joined to specifically implement UniSAFE’s large-scale survey on gender-based violence in their institution. Others will join in as the project develops. EuroScience and Marie Curie Alumni Association are also part of this community.

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 46 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!

UniSAFE has a dedicated Ethics Helpdesk to assist the research performing organisations by providing them with information about ethical aspects of the project and answering their ethics-related questions.
In turn, the organisations commit to obtaining Ethics approvals from their institutional and/or national Ethics Committees, as applicable.
