As described in the General Annexes to Horizon Europe 2021-2022 work programme, having a Gender Equality Plan (GEP) in place that meets a set of mandatory requirements becomes an eligibility criterion for all public bodies, higher education institutions and research organisations from Member States and Associated Countries wishing to participate in Horizon Europe, for calls with deadlines in 2022 and onwards.

DG Research and Innovation is organising on Thursday 23 June, from 14:30 to 16:00 a webinar aimed to introduce organisations’ Legal Entity Appointed Representatives (LEARs) to the specific requirements of the Horizon Europe GEP eligibility criterion, building on the Guidance published last September by the European Commission, detailing the practical steps to be carried out by LEAR through the Participant Register, and providing concrete examples of GEPs developed by organisations.
