GENDER-NET was the first network in the European Research Area dedicated to the promotion of opportunity and gender equality through structural changes in science institutions and the integration of gender research. From 2013 to 2016, the DCND participated as observer in this transnational pilot project initiated by the European Commission. The DCND succeeded in establishing the support of dual career couples as a central and equitable offering for mobile researchers.
