The AGRIGEP project participates in the annual conference: Genetics and Gender Equality

The international campaign "16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence" takes place from November 25 to December 10, is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness on this important topic and promote positive change in society. That is why we presented the content of AGRIGEP at the annual conference of Geneplanet, a leading European biotechnology company specialising in preventive genetic testing for prenatal, hereditary cancer, and lifestyle predisposition. 

Research on gender equality has recently been closely linked to the study of the influence of genetic factors on the gender-determined development, health, and social role of individuals. Understanding genetic factors is important to understand biological differences between the genders better and to develop more tailored approaches to diagnosing, treating, and preventing diseases and gender-specific aspects of health care. Genetics is thus one of the important factors influencing gender diversity, in addition to biological, environmental, and social determinants.

Our presentation at the annual conference highlights the importance of raising awareness about gender equality and promoting positive change in society. Through collaboration and knowledge, we can achieve significant shifts and contribute to creating a more equal and equitable future for all.

The participation of AGRIGEP in Geneplanet's annual conference contributes to raising awareness among external stakeholders on the importance of gender equality, especially on the impact of genetics on health and the promotion of preventive measures. Geneplanet joins the efforts for gender equality in this important campaign.



The AGRIGEP project is funded by Horizon Europe Framework Programme.
