She will work 40% with this project for 18 months starting from 1 October.
The call was for "Oriented research for greater equality" and the decision reasoning was:
"The application describes a project with an exciting combination of gender and design. The project focuses on process which is unusual. With an interdisciplinary team of researchers who managed to draw attention to the issue of gender equality in a whole new way with the conceptual prototype, the project is expected to have good potential to contribute to the call destination. "
