PhD Workshops

FutureGEN will carry out two workshops on methods for developing and utilising gendered indicators and methods in health and care research.

The workshops are aimed at PhD students and planned to extend the reach of FutureGEN beyond the duration of the project to a new generation of researchers.

The workshops will be hosted by two of the consortium partners: Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and Queen’s University in Canada, both renowned higher education institutes.

Canadian PhD Workshop on Intersectionality and health

The first PhD workshop of FutureGEN is taking place virtually on May 5, 2021. Originally planned for 2 days, we have had to scale this back to half day because of COVID restrictions on gathering. Further information on the programme as well as the outcomes of the workshop will be announced on this website.

Swedish PhD Workshop on Gender differences in health and care in old age

The second PhD workshop will also take place virtually over two afternoons, between 14:00-16:00 (CET), on June 7-8, 2021. During the workshop participants will discuss the findings from FutureGEN and their own research on the gendered nature of health and caregiving in old age.

Interested individuals can apply until May 10, 2021 by sending an email with their name, email address and a few words about their research interests to Stefan Fors:
