Gender budgeting als Instrument zur Durchsetzung gleicher Chancen für Frauen und Männer in wissenschaftlichen Organisationen - am Beispiel von Universitäten
The Special Support Action (SSA) 'Gender budgeting as an instrument for managing scientific organisations to promote equal opportunities for women and men - with the example of universities' aims at the development of tools/ instruments to implement gender budgeting as an important part of budget planning in science. With the example of universities we want to extrapolate the findings to contribute to a gender watch system.
In the project, three countries Austria, Germany and Poland, work closely together. This allows a transnational as well as an interdisciplinary approach referring to the methods used in the SSA as well as referring to the participants of the team. As all countries are at a different level of organisational development and at a different level of implementing gender mainstreaming and gender budgeting in science the comparison will enable us to develop valid results. Due to our project objectives we will use qualitative and quantitative methods. Among others there will be document analyses, expert interviews, participative observations, communicative validations and statistical data analyses. With these we will be able not only to understand the obvious but also the processes which are fundamental if we want to find connecting points for gender budgeting in science. We will start our SSA with an analysis of the national frameworks at universities, an analysis of the process of budget planning and an analysis of the actual situation at one university in each country. On the basis of the findings we will develop tools/ instruments to adapt gender to the budgeting of scientific organisations and formulate recommendations for gender budgeting in science on national and EU level.
