Welcome to the ACT community survey!

It's great that you decided to ACT NOW and benefit from the ACT project!

ACT is a Horizon 2020 project and short for “Communities of PrACTice for Accelerating Gender Equality and Institutional Change in Research and Innovation across Europe”. The aim of the project is to support research performing and research funding organisations as well as R&D companies in their gender equality actions. This aim will be achieved through creating and supporting Communities of Practice (CoPs) – collaborating groups of practitioners, academics and experts – that work on advancing gender equality on the organisational level and on enhancing the integration of a gender dimension in research and teaching.

The main objectives of this online-survey are:

    1.  to map actors – practitioners and experts – in the EU-28 who are currently active in advancing gender equality in their organisations/departments and to give you the opportunity to become part of the ACT Communities of Practice (Part I of the survey);

    2.  to get information about the status quo of gender equality implementation activities in your organisation and your network of collaborators (Part II of the survey);

    3.  to identify the expertise and support you would need to overcome barriers your organisation faces (Part III of the survey) so that ACT can develop suitable support and helpful tools to promote and strengthen existing and future collaborations.

You may choose to provide us with your personal data for further contact and collaboration within the ACT project or, if you prefer, to fill in the questionnaire anonymously. You will find our data protection policy on the next page.

Notes on the procedure: The survey consists of three parts and altogether takes roughly 15-25 minutes to fill in. Please answer as many questions as you can. Answers are saved automatically each time you click on "Next". It is possible to interrupt the survey and re-visit your answers again later by clicking on "Save and continue later" in the bottom of each page. Should you change your mind about answering the survey and want your data deleted you can click on "Leave and delete my data". Once you have reached the last page and do not wish to make further changes to your answers we kindly ask you to click on “Survey completed”.
