Abstract: 

With the aim of challenging inequalities within organisations, the Directorate General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission has established a specific funding line in the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development (FP7), which supports projects promoting structural changes in scientific organisations in order to foster gender equality. These Guidelines, which are the result of the activity of one of the first projects to be funded under this line, present a set of tools to enforce efficient gender management to implement structural and institutional changes in research organisations, based on the experiences of the Genis Lab project. The Guidelines are available in several languages (English, German, Italian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanisch, Swedish).
