Resources - GIA Checklist for Research Proposals
Sex, gender and intersectional analyses of the research content are crucial factors for the scientific excellence and success. The European Commission’s Horizon Europe research funding applications are required to include gender dimension into the research content. Thus the planning phase of the research becomes a focal point for targeted actions – ensuring that the research gaps are well defined, research questions detailed, and required data collection and analysis planned accurately – all aspects sensitive for sex and gender differences and considering needed intersections.
The RESET project tackles the challenge by mainstreaming Gender Impact Assessment (GIA) into the design of new research projects of the participating universities. Τhe RESET GIA guidelines and protocol were co-designed to inform and assist institutions to set up a support system for local researchers. The GIA checklist guides a researcher or a research group through EC application excellence, implementation and impact phases to analyse sex, gender and intersectional dimensions of their research under planning. The co-design process of the GIA checklist is ongoing until the end of the project and is aligned with a systematic follow-up procedure.
