Prizes to the best TFG's with gender perspective

The call stems from the agreement signed by the ICD with the UAB’s Faculty of Law to organise a prize to the best TFG in each of the degrees in the Faculty in the academic year 2014-2015. Since the year 2015-2016, the Observatory carries out this initiative but extending it to all the faculties at the UAB. Since the year 2018-2019, the call receives a subsidy of €1000 by the ICD.
These prizes have as a goal to raise awareness among students on gender equality and non-discrimination by promoting their interest on research. Likewise, we want to include gender perspective in teaching and promote gender as an interest point in research and study at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
