NCP Federal BE, NCP FNRSNCP Brussels and NCP Flanders organised an info session on Gender Equality Plans in Horizon Europe. Under Horizon Europe, Gender Equality Plans will be gradually installed as a new eligibility criterion for public bodies, research organisations and higher education establishments (including private research organisations and higher education establishments) applying to the programme (Horizon Europe General Annexes draft, p.12-13). This info session aimed to shed light on this new eligibility criterion. What is a Gender Equality Plan (GEP), what are the obligatory provisions, what is the structure of a GEP, what are the areas covered and possible examples of GEPs.

Founded in 1999, Luciad serves clients in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Though it recently was acquired by Hexagon Geospatial, they kept an agile SME mindset.

NCP Flanders went to Leuven to interview Frederic Houbie, the Research Projects Manager at Luciad, about how he sees Horizon 2020. Luciad is a partner in the MARISA project, which is a collaborative RIA project submitted to an ICT call topic
