The project has eight partner institutions from five countries around the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea Region covers a diverse mix of gender equality policies and practices in science and technology due to historical, political and cultural differences. The consortium of Baltic Gender reaches out to Finland and Sweden that are global leaders in gender equality, Germany that developed active gender policies more recently, and Estonia and Lithuania that are lagging behind in the context of gender equality. The consortium's institutions, with their diverse polices and practices in such as gate-keeping, are committed to advance sustainable and ongoing gender equality policy. This diversity of the consortium provides an optimal environment for valuable exchanges, a growing body of knowledge and innovative measures.
