Gender equality is a topic of increasing relevance worldwide, but its measurement is mainly limited to national levels, even in the UE. During the last 20 years, various experiences tried to exploit gender equality at a subnational (regional) level, but they were country-specific studies focused on single or a few domains (e.g.: education, health, labour market) not providing a complete overview of the territorial disparities on gender equality.

This project is an innovation project as it lays the bases for new insights on gender equality at regional level in the European context.
