The purpose of this call is to provide funding for a meeting place where research institutions can stay up-to-date on the latest new ideas, methods and theories relating to gender balance in academia. The BalanseHub network will collect and share useful and essential knowledge from the research front and provide an arena for exchange of experience between the participating projects.

This call has two priority areas: A) coordination and management of the BalanseHub network, and B) participation in the BalanseHub network.

The main objective of the Programme on Gender Balance in Senior Positions and Research Management (BALANSE) is to improve gender balance in Norwegian through new knowledge, learning and innovative measures. The programme supports the efforts of research institutions to bring about cultural and structural change that promotes gender equality and gender balance.

More information about the objectives and thematic priorities of the programme is available in the BALANSE work programme.
