PROLEARN supports specifically gender mainstreaming and fosters the participation of female researchers within the different tasks.

Furthermore, more than 210 companies and research institutions in Europe, the US and Canada have already expressed their interest in PROLEARN and their intention to integrate their ongoing research activities into PROLEARN and PROLEARN work packages, though they are not formally part ofthe PROLEARN consortium. PROLEARN integrates these and further interested parties using the instrument of the associated partnership, which enables organisations to become part of the success of PROLEARN but still chosing their depth level of integration.
