Centre of Expertise on Gender, Diversity and Intersectionality Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Responsible

The basic objective of the RHEA Expertise Center is to contribute to knowledge development on gender, diversity and intersectionality through scientific and interdisciplinary research and education. RHEA is an interfaculty research group and is led by Gily Coene (director) and Karen Celis (codirector). Rhea also provides a platform for researchers from various VUB departments and faculties and also provides advice on equal opportunities and ...

Genetic Diversity Research Institute for Nature and Forest

The variation in DNA affects the ability of individuals, populations and species to adapt to a dynamic world. In addition, the genetic code is also an excellent source of information for identifying, detecting and detailing biodiversity of species that are difficult to identify.

The Genetic Diversity team works largely around these two themes:

(1) the use of genetic research to assess the status of species and populations. This ...

Diversity Hasselt University

Responsible

The research of the unit is organized in three thematic clusters: diversity in employment relations and organizations, in education and in the Belgian society. Examples of research topics are inclusive diversity management practices, the relation between diversity and employment relations, pregnancy-related discrimination at work, work-family balance for female entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurship in ethnic minority communities. ...

Brussels research center for Innovation in Learning and Diversity Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Responsible

The proposed research group aims to formalize cooperation within the research spearhead 'Change and innovation in educational contexts'. Research activities within this research spearhead focus specifically on the analysis of levers for change in educational settings. Changing processes and coping with consequences are, in fact, in today's society and all its subsystems the rule rather than the exception. This holds even more for education ...

Innovation, Diversity and Educational Approaches Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The alliance research group has been interdisciplinary with education researchers from both the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University. The research focus of the alliance research group is therefore also interdisciplinary and bundles expertise from the scientific (sub) disciplines 'educational sciences' and 'educational sociology'. From an educational perspective, research on education innovation and implementation is the main ...

Citizenship, Equality & Diversity (CED) University of Antwerp

The research group focuses on issues of inequality and equality in relation to the diversity characterising our contemporary society, mainly within a political science frame, but also connecting to social and human science more broadly. Our research is driven by a concern for detecting, analysing and understanding mechanisms and causes of inequality and by the question of how to define and promote the equality of social groups in our ...

Genetic Diversity Research Institute for Nature and Forest

The genetic code, perhaps better known as DNA, determines all biological diversity on Earth. Variation in DNA affects the ability of populations and species to adapt in a dynamic world. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) considers genetic diversity as the first of the three levels – genes, species and ecosystems – at which biodiversity must be preserved. Without genetic diversity, species become extinct and ecosystems collapse. The ...

Biotope Diversity Research Institute for Nature and Forest

The Biotope Diversity team builds knowledge and understanding of the state and trends of habitats and other biotopes and vegetation in order to support appropriate Natura 2000, biotope and site-based policies. Together with colleagues from other teams, we take care of the six-yearly analysis of the state of Natura 2000 habitats (and report it to the EU) and the preparation and evaluation of the Regional Conservation Objectives for those ...

Species Diversity Research Institute for Nature and Forest

The Species Diversity team investigates the state and trends of populations of species in a regional (Flanders), national (Belgium) and international context with a view to the conservation and management of biodiversity. To this end, it charts the biotic and abiotic habitat requirements of species, interactions between species, and the impact of human activities on species in order to explain the observed trends. The methods used include ...
