Equality, diversity and family friendliness


Equality, diversity and family friendliness are essential for a functioning research landscape and lead to considerable added value:

  • gender equality affects the quality of research, as talent can be drawn from a larger pool
  • a diversity of research perspectives is promoted
  • gender bias in science is eliminated

For this reason, the SFB 1350 has committed itself in its concept to contribute to the development of an infrastructure for sustainable gender equality work in its collaborative projects.

The SFB 1350 Gender Equality Funding is to be used primarily:

  • to improve the compatibility of scientific career and family life duties
  • to support young female scientists in their scientific careers and to help to increase the number of women scientists at principal investigator level
  • to make science and research more family-friendly

Applications for support from the Gender Equality Fund may be submitted at any time to the Executive Board via the gender equality officer (contact: michaela.kritzenberger@ur.de).

A report on the Gender Equality Funds awarded is submitted to the annual SFB 1350 Mitgliederversammlung.
