Gender Equality Plan

Gender Equality Plan

Horizon Europe funding

All higher education institutions from EU Member States and associated countries must have a Gender Equality Plan (GEP) to be eligible for Horizon Europe funding.

Newcastle University meets the requirements for a GEP. This is through our Athena Swan Action Plan, alongside the work we have set out to meet our Equality Objectives.

Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) are central to Newcastle University’s vision, strategy and values.‌

Athena Swan Charter

The University has engaged with Advance HE’s Athena Swan Charter since 2010. This equality accreditation scheme recognises good practice in higher education and research institutions.

They assess the advancement of gender equality in terms of:

  • representation
  • progression
  • success
