AThe second mid-term Report on the UAIC-STAGES activity (concerning the period 1.07.2013-31.12.2014) highlighted that the project team has followed the enriched self-tailored Action Plan with a special focus on the sustainability of the new structures and strategies developed according to our own model of organizational change, entitled Fixing transformative and formative praxis, which already generated real structural changes for promoting gender equality in science at the University level. On this 18 months period a number of more than 45 actions and activities have been successfully carried out and publicly communicated on the UAIC-STAGES project website in almost 90 news concerning our activities. We can mention the setting up of new institutionalised structures (as the UAIC Centre for Gender Equality in Science, the UAIC Network of Women in Academia and Research, the UAIC Research Group on Gender Studies, the UAIC Multimedia Communication Team) as well as initiatives of new organizational practices for increasing the women researchers' visibility (like the public events "Women Researchers Day", "UAIC's Excellence Awards for Women in Science", Documentary exhibition "UAIC – A Place for Women in Science", documentary films series "UAIC Profiles of Women in Science"), training programmes, workshops, and info-days for improving women's participation in research, introduction of GES in PhD studies, courses and debates on Gendered Science, monitoring and reporting the gender dynamics on a regular base etc. Also, within this reporting period 7 Deliverables about 12 Actions, with more than 500 pages, have been produced in the due time and uploaded on the EC portal. The WP4 team has also contributed to the common activities, like the first STAGES report (July 2013), the STAGES Mid-term Workshop (March 2014), Sustainability report (2013), 3 STAGES Newsletters (4, 5 and 6/2013-2014), 2 Evaluation reports (2013, 2014), Cross-cutting research with the other partners (2013, 2014), 2 SC meetings and mutual learning sessions and 1 IBSA meeting (from 2013). Dissemination strategy was followed both at the national level (for example, the UAIC-STAGES project was presented in the National Report for the Conference about FP7 and Horizon 2020 held in Bucharest (2013) with the participation of the EC Commissioner; in contacts with the National agencies and the Ministry of National Education representatives as well as through several TV interviews, TV reports and talk-shows, articles and presentations in mass-media) and at the international level (i.e.. communications at different European conferences and workshops - Vilnius, 2013; Brussels 2014; Paris 2014; Vienna 2014). The second mid-term Report on the UAIC-STAGES activity was integrated in the STAGES consortium's report, prepared in January 2015 and sent to the EC-DG Research and Innovation on 31 January 2015(see the Report pdf).
