It’s a common belief that women are less suited to STEM subjects than man. Not only that, but also the SSH disciplines are affected by gender stereotypes.

The GARCIA Project aspires at deconstructing these false assumptions and at introducing gender equality in academia and research.

In order to change the organizational practices, the project is focused on identifying and improving existent practices in organizations at all the levels of the career, from the early stages (C grade academic staff and researchers without a permanent position) to the management and decision level.

The GARCIA Project also seeks to increase awareness of the importance of adopting the gender equality principle in policy making, research and students’ curricula.
