First EViR Dissemination & Implementation Interest Group Meeting
This session was the first D&I interest group meeting. Attendees had the opportunity to meet D&I peers from organisations around the world. The starting point of the discussion was the challenges named in the 2019 D&I survey and input from the introduction round. Followed by a reflection on recognition of categories and types of activities and usability of the table and a checklist/benchmark for funders policies in D&I.
