The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) is one of the world’s premier online Higher Education universities, now engaging more than 50,000 students. The UOC’s core goal is to promote innovative education, personalized learning, technological leadership, and R&D work on the information society and eLearning. The Gender & ICT research group (GenTIC), to which the staff involved in this project belongs, is part of the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3) of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. GenTIC has a long history in research concerning the role of gender stereotypes for study choices and selection of future professions. It has coordinated two European projects: GenPORT, a FP7 CSA project that built an internet portal on gender and science, and GEDII, a H2020 project investigating the impact of gender diversity in research teams. The group is also a partner in a third European project launched the 1st of June 2016 developing an evaluation framework for gender equality initiatives (EFFORTi).
