Gender Consulting for DFG Coordinated Programmes

Equal Opportunity in Coordinated Programmes

The DFG is actively committed to equal opportunity and the equality of women and men. In doing so, the DFG pursues two main goals:

  • to reach an equal representation of women and men at all career stages of the German academic system and
  • to improve the reconciliation of an academic career and family life.

To this end, the DFG grants funds for equal opportunity measures in its coordinated programmes, up to 15.000€ per year for Research Training Groups, Research Units and Priority Programmes and up to 30.000€ for Collaborative Research Centres.

The university's gender consulting service supports applicants and established coordinated programmes in the following areas:

  • gender equality concerns in the application process
  • implementation of equal opportunity measures
  • advice and events for researchers in coordinated programmes
