genderED and Edinburgh Research Office (International Development Research Hub) have worked together on this capacity-building project.
It supports Edinburgh academics (especially those from science, technology and engineering) and their LMIC partners to:
- integrate gender equality considerations into Global Challenges Research Fund and Newton Fund research projects
- promote gender parity in research teams and global research partnerships
They have created a suite of resources, including a new toolkit and Guidance. The work, funded through the Scottish Funding Council / Global Challenges Research Fund, continues in 2020-21. (Led by Fiona Mackay and Rosalind Cavaghan)
