  1. Hi,
    I’m teacher and researcher in a Portuguese university. I’, planning to submit a project about Gender and Mobility. My interest in this thematic is from the perspective of Sociology. My PhD thesis was about Mobility and I have coordinated the project of implementation of the Gender Equality Plan of my university. Presently I work in the tow thematics and I would like to join both in a project as my PhD research enable me with interesting clues about the relation between Mobility and Gender. I wonder if I can join your network and work with you in a propostal to submit to 7th Programme.

  2. Dear All.
    Look at Gesturs answer. I competely agree with him. My first mail is an effort to see if there are some interest to make a try. IF there are an interest, we must really see who are interested and how much time we can put into this. SIRI
