The Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta (FINCB) constitutes a unique model of an Institute for Scientific Hospitalization and Care (IRCCS) under public law dedicated to patient care and clinical and preclinical research in neuroscience. FINCB acknowledges the benefits of gender equality in research, as part of the scientific excellence of its projects.  

The implementation of a project aimed at achieving a gender balance in the workplace (Gender Equality Plan, GEP) is the main European strategy for promoting equal opportunities between men and women. 

The GEP of the FINCB identifies three macro-areas on which to develop improvement actions with objectives in the short (1 year), medium (3 years) and long term (5 years): 

  • Promote gender balance at all at work levels 
  • Promote and support women in the workplace 
  • Promote work-life balance
