Time period of the project 1.4.2009 - 31.3.2012
Annotation of the project  
The Project brings together Universities, R&D institutions, SME support facilities from EU-15, NMS as well as IPA to prepare and create the first automotive network in South East Europe. The second level clustering activities proposed by the project are strictly oriented on the activities, which are improving the innovation capacities in the region and improve technology and know-how transfer - improving the innovation circle. The project in the first stage analyses the cluster's development and best practices across the regions as well as creating the connection with other existing European activities in the automotive clustering. The project focuses highly towards producing concrete results and addresses the main challenges that are particularly specific for SEE region, particularly the same across the whole EU territory.
The project is built up on experience from previous activities in Automotive industry (NEAC, Automotive Clusters, Belcar, TCAS, I-CAR-O) and in line with EU policies, especially in clustering and automotive industry. The framework's project aims to:
- Create the first sustainable network in automotive industry in SEE region with specific focus on innovation activities
- Create partnerships which consist of institutions from New Member States, non-EU members as well as well experienced institutions from EU-15
- Invite in the network not just clusters and other SME supporting facilities but directly also R&D institutions and universities
- Improve innovative capability by realizing studies of innovation capacities, exhibition in universities and dissemination outputs of our activities, exchange studies and networking activities
- Prove the concept by realizing the project samples and by generating of the proposals to FP7
Title of the project DIVERSITY. Improving the Gender Diversity of Management in Materials Research Institutions
Type of the project 7FP
Number of the project  
Investigators Oliver Moravčík, Prof. Dr., Dagmar Cagáňová, assoc. prof., František Horňák, assoc. prof., Peter Halada, MSc., PhD., Jana Štefánková, MSc.
Time period of the project Jan. 2009 - Dec. 2011
Annotation of the project  
DIVERSITY is a support action - type project funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme for research and technological development and addresses to the Capacities programme, part 5 Science in Society, activity 5.2.1. Gender and Research, thematic area Strengthening the role of women in scientific research. The project has started on the 1st of January 2009 and will last 36 months.
This consortium aims to tackle the problem of under-representation of women in decision-making by fostering the change in institutional culture and changing the attitudes with regard to gender diversity in materials research organisations. In this way a more stimulating research environment in the spirit of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for their Recruitment will be achieved.
The central goal of the project is to identify the effective methods, policies and mechanisms in order to support women scientists in relation to their access to decision-making positions in the sphere of materials research, which traditionally is a male-dominated scientific field. Commitment to the promotion of women to the highest level of research is anchored at the topmost political and institutional level in DIVERSITY project.
Gender equality in science is not simply a question of fairness. To strengthen human capital must be utilised.
