ENEGE – European Network of Experts in the field of Gender Equality


ENEGE (European Network of Experts in the field of Gender Equality) aims to contribute to the development of comprehensive European-level policies that abide by gender equality in the framework of the European Commission’s current priorities, namely:

  • The Europe 2020 Strategy for the EU to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy with high levels of employment, productivity and social cohesion
  • The European Commission’s  Strategy for equality between women and men 2010-2015, and in particular its first four priorities (a) promoting equality as part of the Europe 2020 strategy and through EU funding; b) promoting female entrepreneurship and self-employment; c) assessing workers’ rights with regard to leave for family reasons; d) assessing Member States’ performance with regard to childcare facilities)

Working as a knowledge broker for the most relevant European and international research on gender equality, ENEGE advises and supports the European Commission in the analysis of gender equality policies, reforms and their implications at European and national level.
