Early Career / Gender Equality

The equality of women and men in research is a goal that still needs to be achieved. The University of Duisburg-Essen commits to the targets of gender equality. In collaboration with the Equal Opportunities team of the Faculty of Physics and the central Equal Opportunities team of the University of Duisburg-Essen, the CRC 1242 empowers its female researchers.

Here, you find an overview of gender equality measures in our academic context.
