Gender balance cannot be introduced by addressing young people and schools alone. This is why this project rely on its national hubs to help achieve such a complex task. These hubs consist of a panel of schools (science teachers but also head teachers), informal educational institutions, local, regional and national authorities, academic research institutes and industries, gender experts, parents, but above all, young people themselves. The panels are crucial in the development and implementation of the Hypatia modules. They ensure there is cooperation, exchange and discussion at the national level and that the issue is approached comprehensively. They give a voice to the young people so they have their say when it comes to having a more gender inclusive approach to sciences. Besides, hubs have been created at the national level because every country has its own approach to science, its specificities as well as a rich diversity of expertise. Gathering this knowledge enrich the modules but also help adapt the toolkit to the local culture.

Hubs will help operate the modules in the museums. They set up events to raise awareness on gender issues and are key in disseminating the modules to all of our stakeholders. They also are the entry point at the national level for anybody interested in the project. At last, the offer the teenagers the possibility to contribute to the project.
