The gEneSys project R&I workforce survey: Promoting inclusive knowledge production to enable a just energy transition

The energy industry is currently undergoing a profound transformation where Research & Innovation (R&I) plays a critical role. The success of the current energy transition relies heavily on the skills and motivation of the sector's employees working in knowledge production roles.

The EU gEneSys project is inviting you to contribute to the survey concerning the working environment in which energy knowledge producers operate, which builds upon the recent study commissioned by CINEA, European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency, to help the European Commission improve the role of women in the energy transition.

The survey targets researchers, technicians, experts, academics, and practitioners engaged in scientific and technological knowledge production for the energy sector. It will aim to gauge employees' overall job satisfaction and assess the organisational culture, work-related quality of life and collaboration dynamics.

The collected data will be used to create project reports and scientific publications, accessible to the public on the gEneSys project website. Moreover, the analysis of survey results will contribute to a policy brief supporting inclusive knowledge production for a just energy transition.

The survey is anonymous and data collection and storage adhere to GDPR regulations. The data policy and informed consent details are available in the questionnaire opening page.

It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, and participants are free to exit at any time. The survey link will remain active until 30 April 2024.
