LERU (The League of European Research Universities)
The League of European Research Universities (LERU) is an association of 23 universities across 12 counties that are committed to:
- Encouraging education through an awareness of the frontiers of human understanding
- Fostering the creation of new knowledge through basic research as the ultimate source of innovation in society
- Promoting research across a broad front, which creates a unique capacity to respond to new opportunities and problems
LERU attaches considerable importance to a number of strategic issues. One of those is concerned with Gender for which it has established a Thematic Group. Members of this group (including representation by TCGEL, Trinity College) contribute their expertise on specific topics related to their remit. They operate on an activity-driven, self-organising and voluntary basis.
