GENDER-NET Plus aims to strengthen transnational collaborations between research program owners and managers, and provide support to the promotion of gender equality through institutional change. Furthermore, the GENDER-NET Plus consortium aims to promote the integration of sex and gender analysis into research.

One of the aims of GENDER-NET Plus is to support the gender dimension as a research focus. The main activity of the project was to organize a joint co-funded call for researchers in three thematic areas based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals: health and well-being; industry, innovation and infrastructure; measures to combat climate change. As sa result of the call, 13 international cooperation projects were funded which look at the gender dimension from different perspectives. The second focus of GENDER-NET Plus activities is the analysis of gender equality in the research funding of the participating countries and recommendations for taking into account the preferential dimension in research funding.

The consortium consists of 16 committed organisations from 13 countries and Estonian Research Council (ETAG) is one of them. GENDER-NET Plus pursues the set of priorities identified by GENDER-NET, that finished in 2016, in which ETAG did not yet participate. GENDER-NET Plus ERA-NET Cofund (more information on ERA-NETs ​​see here) was launched September 15 in 2017 and will run until 2023.
