The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) is an autonomous body of the European Union, established to contribute to and strengthen the promotion of gender equality, including gender mainstreaming in all EU policies and the resulting national policies, and the fight against discrimination based on sex, as well as to raise EU citizens’ awareness of gender equality.

The seat of the European Institute for Gender Equality is in Vilnius (Lithuania). It was officially launched in June 2010. The digital agenda is the European Union’s strategy that ensures that digital technologies, including the internet, are used to stimulate the EU’s economy and help its citizens and businesses to get the most out of these technologies. In this context, gender has particular relevance.
