Transversal objectives

Equal opportunities and anti-discrimination

The European Union and the Member States ensure that within the framework of the operational programs equality between men and women and the consideration of the gender aspect are promoted, and measures against all forms of discrimination based on sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age, or sexual orientation are taken. Furthermore, the programmes aim to draw the attention of project promoters to these issues and to encourage them to approach their project from a non-discriminatory, equal opportunities and gender equality perspective.
