Studies show that the quality and accountability of research and innovation in a broad sense can be affected in taking gender and diversity into account. Integrating a gender and/or sex analysis in research and innovation (R&I) content contributes to an in-depth understanding of diverse needs , behaviours and attitudes. This improves the scientific quality and societal relevance of the produced knowledge, technologies and innovations. It also contributes to the production of goods and services better suited to potential markets.
The course will depart from cases provided by a cluster of private and public organizations and connected to different scientific fields such as health, care, mobility, communication, human rights etc. The aim is to provide students with a hands on experience and ability to transfer theoretical knowledge of sex and gender analysis into identification of new solutions and strategies in stake holder organizations.
