Thus, there will be a space of two hours per week in which the teacher-advisor will hold group seminar sessions in order to share the process being conducted (set guidelines and organize the activity, choose the topic, provide documentation, plan the activities, etc.). These Seminar sessions will be alternated with individualized follow-up/tutoring (in which each tutor will personally follow up on the thesis).

As the European Union points out, gender equality is not only a matter of social justice but also affects the results of teaching and research. Promoting gender equality in research and innovation is one of the European Commission's commitments, and it supports the explicit integration of a gender perspective in Horizon 2020 projects. However, this recommendation is often poorly understood and misapplied. Various documents are presented here with a view to contributing to a better understanding and application of the gender perspective in teaching and research.
