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, SFB 1350 / TRR 374 has committed itself in its concept to contribute to the development of an infrastructure for sustainable gender equality work in its collaborative projects.

SFB 1350 / TRR 374 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 / TRR 374 Mitgliederversammlung.
