"The promotion of gender equality is part of the European Commission's strategic approach in the field of research and innovation.  It contributes to the enhancement of European competitiveness and the full realisation of European innovation potential.  In this framework we welcome the success of projects such as genSET, which demonstrate the essential role the EU has to play in contributing to long-term sustainable solutions in addressing gender imbalances in science.”

Robert-Jan Smits - Director-General for Research and Innovation, European Commission on genSET.

"The multi-stakeholder dialogue promoted by the Gender Summit will help redefine the research and innovation landscape to give women and men an equal role in research and society, as co-owners and co-solvers of Europe’s societal challenges.” 

MEP Britta Thomsen, European Parliament on the European Gender Summit 2012. Portia is co-convenor of the event as part of our genSET programme
