GenderSMART is a European partnership on gender equality in agricultural and life sciences.

It is an EU funded project which started on 1st January 2019.  It is a 4 year project funded under Horizon 2020. Winning this project has been hugely beneficial for Teagasc as it has provided us with much needed resources to focus specifically on gender equality.
