The idea of UAIC/CSMCD participation in this project was generated in Brussels, at the Final Conference of the FP7 Project META-ANALYSIS OF GENDER AND SCIENCE RESEARCH, entitled Beyond the leaky pipeline. Challenges for research on gender and science, held at the Institute for the Equality of Women and Men (19-20 October, 2010). At that time, Prof. dr. Doina Balahur, who was a member of the FP7 Meta-analysis team, met some of the future partners and talked about a possible project application on gender issues within the frame of the FP7-Capacities open call. The participants at that discussion were Marina Cacace (ASDO, Italy) and Inge Bleijenbergh (Radboud University, The Netherlands).
