Are you interested in cooperating with us?
The secretariat has many years’ experience of researching and analysing sustainable conditions for research, education and working life. The expertise we have built up enables us to take on commissioned work and launch collaborative projects. We can also offer support and input in ongoing processes run by our collaborative partners. Please contact our Director Ph.D. Fredrik Bondestam to discuss what our organisations could achieve together.
We distinguish ourselves from many other actors working on issues related to gender equality, gender and working life.
Our activities are research-driven, part of the University of Gothenburg and have the role of a co-operation body in the Nordic region. We participate in several international collaboration projects and have the task of being Sweden's expert function for gender and gender equality in the European Research Area (ERA). The combination and breadth of these various elements distinguishes us from many other organisations working on similar issues.
We co-operate in higher education and research policy.
We are an established part of the Swedish higher education policy landscape, where our role is to initiate, manage and develop research-based knowledge that strengthens core academic values: meritocracy, collegiality, critical perspectives and academic freedoms. In the Nordic region and the EU, our role is to contribute research-based knowledge and drive policy development with a focus on gender equality and gender in research.
We have many years of experience of collaboration in national, Nordic and international contexts.
We participate in networks, alliances and consortia where our expertise is in demand. We contribute with knowledge in expert groups, at conferences and in advisory bodies. We also provide expert support in collaborative assignments and conduct comparative analyses, systematic research reviews and research projects.
Our employees have experience of participating in various collaborative projects for national, Nordic and European clients.
The secretariat has staff with expertise in research, investigation and analysis, coordination, collaboration, communication and project management. Several of the secretariat's investigators have PhDs and have expertise in fields such as Working Life Science, Sociology, Gender Studies, Philosophy and Educational Work.
Through collaboration, we connect relevant actors at national, Nordic and international level.
Our developed knowledge, nationally and in the Nordic region, is put to direct use and deepened in a European context. We participate in several international collaboration projects and have an assigned role as a national expert organisation for gender equality and gender in the European Research Area (ERA). Through collaboration, we develop both our own and our partners' activities.
We make our partners and the results of our collaboration visible.
We consult with our partners on how to communicate the results of our collaboration. We make our partners and our collaboration visible in national, Nordic and international contexts. In this way, we also increase the impact of the knowledge resulting from our collaboration.
