The main focus of these models is on scientific and technological fields other than humanities and social science. Typically, STEM fields have been so far less advanced on IGAR and IGAUC. Consequently most of the recent resources (manuals, websites, etc.) developed to support and make researchers aware of IGAR methods usually highlight examples in STEM fields. However, it must be noted that efforts should still be made to further develop IGAR and IGAUC in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) research and teaching practices.  Three of the models presented in this section have a broad scope including SSH fields.

7 cases are presented in this section. Each one is divided in three subsections:

  1. an introduction to the programme/initiative;
  2. a description of its objectives;
  3. further details about the development of the experience.

 

To follow the same structure for the 7 cases, the extracts quoted from these initiatives do not follow the linear order of the reference documents. These cases involve 6 universities (5 European ones and one more in U.S.) and a network of professors and scientists (in Germany): the Charité University Hospital of Berlin, the Technical University of Berlin, the Technical University of Braunschweig, the University of Valencia, Brown University, the Women’s & Gender Research Network NRW (North Rhine-Westphalia), and the University of Barcelona.

The first four cases are descriptions of existing programmes at European universities. The three last ones are examples of inspiring initiatives aimed at supporting the promotion of the gender analysis in university curricula at different levels, and have been selected as complementary steps oriented to facilitate IGAUC.
