Juno and Athena SWAN

The aims of Project Juno are complementary to the Athena SWAN Silver for UK institutions, and it is possible that the award of one can fast-track the award of the other.

The area where Juno and Athena SWAN differ is that Juno recognises the work of individual physics departments, whereas Athena SWAN awards an institution as a whole must commit to the charter and achieve Athena Bronze before a SET department can apply in their own right for Silver.

Therefore Juno recognises and rewards physics departments, including those not eligible for Athena SWAN due to location or institutional circumstances, for the good practice they demonstrate.

If your department is working towards or already holds Athena SWAN Silver status please contact us to discuss the award of Juno Champion.
