The evaluation of the seven CoPs founded in ACT aim to assess their effectiveness as a strategy to contribute to structural change processes regarding Gender Equality (GE) and identify the added value of membership for the implementation of gender equality strategies. Moreover, the implementation of the CoPs has been evaluated to figure out what works well and what needs to be improved to increase the effectiveness of CoPs.

ACT has produced a series of video interviews done during the 1st ACT Synergy Conference (25 February 2019, Brussels) to collect the reflections of relevant experts on their experiences about Communities of Practice (CoP), what are the particularities of CoPs and what is their usefulness to foster institutional change towards gender equality.
The 1st ACT International Synergy Conference was held on the 25th of February 2019 in Brussels and gathered 100 participants from 23 different countries, who came together for a day of presentations, networking and workshops.
Welcome to ACT, a H2020 funded project that will enable better access, sharing and improvement of knowledge and practices for the implementation of gender equality measures at universities, research centres and research funding organisations in Europe.
