Equal Opportunities & Diversity in Research and Teaching

Equity and Diversity in Research

German Research Foundation (DFG): Equity and DiversityHide

German Research Foundation (DFG): Equity and Diversity

"Excellent science needs diversity and originality. In order to ensure that all relevant sections of society are addressed in the long term, science and the humanities have to appropriately represent all these areas as well. This happens not just through the structure of the subjects in science and humanities but also through the individuals who research and teach in these subject areas. The DFG believes that no one should be disadvantaged in their career on the basis of academically irrelevant factors such as gender, origin, age or state of health. For this reason, the DFG offers numerous measures to promote a research landscape that reflects diversity and equal opportunity."
