The DAISSy Research Group of Hellenic Open University participated in the 4th Transnational Meeting of the project XENIA, in Barcelona, 29-30 March 2022. The meeting was organized at the University of Barcelona (Deparment of Psychology) and was held in hybrid mode, with both in-person and remote attendees. The discussion was moderated by the SInaPSi centre of the University of Naples Federico II, Coordinator of the project Consortium. After a brief overview of their joint progress so far, the Consortium partners discussed the current status of the project and their plans for the next months.
Particular attention was paid to Work Package 3 – Validation Plan, the completion of which is led by Hellenic Open University. The afore-mentioned work package involves the pilot implementation (in stages) of social survey tools for assessing the Inclusiveness of European academic communities as regards sex, gender and sexual orientation. The whole process will be supported by a dedicated, accessible web platform.
XΕΝΙΑ, a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, is run by a Consortium of 7 Partners from 5 countries (Ireland, Italy, Greece, Slovenia and Spain). The project aims to promote social and educational inclusion of sexual minority and gender marginalised groups in EU HEIs, by developing and implementing an innovative inclusiveness index (“the XENIA Inclusiveness Index”) to support Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in EU HE contexts.
