GENERA Network originated from the EU-funded GENERA project, which was supporting physics research organisations in their efforts to enhance gender equality in the time from September 2015 until August 2018. The network could be continuously expanded to currently 41 organisations from all over Europe. GENERA Network is based on a Memorandum of Understanding and invites interested institutions to join. Its vision is to support, coordinate and improve gender equality policies in physics research organisations in Europe and world-wide.

In monthly meetings good practice and experience in implementing gender equality is shared among the members and friends of GENERA Network. Thematic working groups have been established to e.g. conceptualize workshops and develop training material to provide physicists on all career levels and institutions in physics with adequate knowledge on gender equality in physics. Another important topic is to figure out whether a gender perspective is also present in physics and the math-intensive fields of sciences.

In our contribution we will present an overview on GENERA Network and its activities.
