European Network For Gender Balance in Informatics

Women are underrepresented in Informatics at all levels, from undergraduate and graduate studies to participation and leadership in academia and industry. The main aim and objective of EUGAIN is to improve gender balance in Informatics at all levels through the creation of a European network of colleagues working on the forefront of the efforts for gender balance in Informatics in their countries and research communities.

EUGAIN Activities & Grants



Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) are aimed at supporting individual mobility, at strengthening existing networks, and at fostering collaborations by allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another country.


Training Schools

Training Schools aim to facilitate capacity building through the delivery of intensive training on a new or emerging topic. Training schools are typically, although not exclusively, considered to be for the benefit of Early Career Investigators and PhD students.



EUGAIN supports the organization of different types of events by its members, such as meetings, workshops, and conferences for the purpose of disseminating the COST Action’s objectives and activities.


ITC Conference Grants

One of the priorities of a COST Action is to enhance research collaboration where ideas and people can grow without borders, through Conference Grants. These help PhD students and early-career investigators from Inclusiveness Target Countries to attend international science and technology-related conferences in various fields.
