Mission

Ipazia, Scientific Observatory on the Gender Issues, is a reality afferent to the University Niccolò Cusano, aiming at providing a complete and up-to-date picture of the researches, services and initiatives that highlight the condition of women at a local, national and supranational level.

With this aim, the observatory will implement gender studies by organizing and promoting scientific activities (workshops, seminars, conventions, researchers and scientific laboratories) on gender studies in a broad sense.

Given that in a teamwork ideas and goals are in a continuous evolution, the mission is to set up a Scientific Observatory, with the main goal of giving a complete and up-to-date picture of the   gender initiative and services, as well as achieving and divulgating – through researches, seminars and workshops – information, knowledge and needs that best highlight the condition of women at a local, national and supranational level.

“Ipazia”, symbol of the free scientific thought, also wants to be a reference for public bodies, private organizations, associations, schools, students and researchers that are interested, for no matter what reason, in promoting gender differences and equal opportunities.
