To be eligible to apply to any part of Horizon Europe, individual organisations such as higher education establishments and research organisations are required to have a Gender Equality Plan (GEP) in place for funding calls with deadlines from 2022 onwards.

A self-declaration is required to be submitted at proposal stage, through a questionnaire confirming that the institution has a GEP in place.

The GEP reflects commitments and actions which aim to promote gender equality through institutional and cultural change. It is a whole-organisation plan which engages a variety of stakeholders and encourages self-reflection and review of processes and practices.

The GEP contains four mandatory process-related requirements and five recommended content-related areas that organisations may wish to consider in their GEPs.
