GILL partners met in Prague for the Third Project Consortium meeting to discuss gender diversity, entrepreneurship and innovation. Our colleagues Marta Plaza and Ana Belén Gil attended on behalf of the University of Salamanca and presented the mock-up of the platform we are developing.

The platform is aimed at GILL's target audience, allowing them to visualise the results arising from the project, such as the Action-Ordered Experimentation (AOEs), the manual of good practices, the Gender-Responsive methods and the toolbox, which redirects to other web pages of the same project. In addition, on this platform you can find educational resources, such as the Competency Framework, materials that are added periodically, such as videos, webinars and workshops, as well as documents in PDF format, together with a glossary that offers definitions of the terms used in the project.

In the community section, possible models to follow in areas such as transport, university sport or the rural world are presented. It also offers the possibility of contacting the proposed mentors, allowing to request meetings with those who best suit specific needs. In the Network section, the different European countries that have initiatives in line with the project are shown, facilitating access to them through the links provided.

The meeting was held from 13 to 15 May, during these three days, the different partners also made their presentations. We were welcomed by our colleagues from the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL). Then, representatives from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) moderated the first cycle of AOEs (Action-Ordered Experimentation), where partners' views were discussed and shared. Afterwards, partners from Coventry University (CU) and Københavns Universitet - University of Copenhagen (UCPH) presented the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and their impact, followed by a session on the planning of the second iteration cycle and discussion of the AOEs by Hochschule Heilbronn (HHN) and AUTH.

On the second day of the consortium meeting, UCPH and the Institute of Sociology of the Czech Academy of Sciences (ISAS) addressed the topic of the fourth solution of culture and barriers for Gender-Responsive Smart Innovation and Entrepreneurship (GRISE), followed by a presentation on gender and diversity mainstreaming. In turn, CU partners presented an interesting talk on female entrepreneurship and Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini (FGB) discussed the GILL policy framework in relation to the EU policy strategy. 

On the last day of meetings, we had the opportunity to show the progress of the platform, through a mock-up that explained in detail all the sections and functionalities. It was certainly a positive experience, and it was also an opportunity to exchange ideas and strategies on equality, technology and entrepreneurship.
