EDGE - Centre for Equality, Diversity and Gender

Welcome to the EDGE homepage

EDGE is an interdisciplinary research and information centre, whose purpose is to support and stimulate research within the area of equality, diversity and gender in the widest possible sense. Specialized knowledge within these fields is in great demand, and the centre, among other resources, hosts special knowledge on (gender) equality, inequality and social differences, diversity, diversity management, gender mainstreaming and related fields.

The purpose of the centre is - on a national, Nordic, European and international level - to engage in active dialogue and collaboration on a number of strands:

  • Undertake larger reporting and evaluation assignments for external stakeholders and contractors
  • Offer research based counselling, exchange of knowledge and consultancy for public authorities
  • Contribute with input to relevant public hearings and reports
  • Communicate knowledge and present research results in the form of publications, lectures and seminars
  • Initiate and coordinate collaborative efforts among research groups about applications for larger interdisciplinary research projects
  • Support research into central societal issues relating to equality, diversity and gender

The Centre is hosted by the department of Culture and Global Studies at Aalborg University, Denmark, and is based on a principle of many and open collaborative relations across the university, with research environments at other institutes.


About EDGE

EDGE provides research-, report- and evaluation services, as well as academic consultancy, in all fields related to equality, diversity or gender.

EDGE is undertaking a lot of different projects from short-term consultancy to multi-year interdisciplinary operations and ranging from individual consultancy assignments to more complex projects involving larger, and often, interdisciplinary teams.
Apart from the permanent research team, EDGE also draws on a number of associated researchers and research environments at AAU and other Danish universities, just as researchers from EDGE take part in a number of Nordic, European and international networks. Read more about our many collaborators under “Associated researchers and networks” and read more about our work under “Projects and assignments”.

All the centre’s assignments are planned in close collaboration with the contractors. We deliver a high quality of work and can guarantee a high level of professional competence.
