Communication of Prof. Doina Balahur at the 8th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education (Vienna, September 2014)

8th European Conference 8th European Conference 8th European Conference

The European conferences on gender equality in higher education already represent a prestigious tradition for the academic and research community from Europe and beyond. Since 1998, when the first edition was organized in Finland by the University of Helsinki, the conferences have itinerated across Europe to Zürich (2000), Genoa (2003), Oxford (2005), Berlin (2007), Stockholm (2009), Bergen (2012), and now in 2014, at the 8th edition, in Vienna (at the Vienna University of Technology, on the period 2-5 September 2014). By bringing together hundreds of gender equality practitioners, researchers and administrators from the academic world, the conferences were conceived to provide an international forum to discuss and exchange information and experiences and share research results on the changes and challenges related to gender in academia, gender equality promotion and interventions in higher education and research institutions. This year 377 participants from more than 30 countries have attended the conference. Almost 150 speakers have approached, in plenary and parallel sessions, workshops, panel discussions and poster session, such topics as "Gender Equality in Higher Education: Next Steps to Go", "Strategies for Institutional Change", "Gendered careers in universities: Challenges for theory and equality policy", "Creating Gender Equal Workplaces in Academia", "Recruitment policies" and "Early career" issues, "Gender-sensitive teaching", "Gender Content in Disciplines", "Explorations & Interventions in Work-Life-Balance and Academic Working Cultures", " Cultural change in academia: starting points, challenges and success factors" and so on (see: In the session titled "Change Processes", Professor Doina Balahur presented the scientific communication "Promoting the "co-operation paradigm" for gendering the universities and science organizations.
