CRC/TRR 247 Early Career Support and Gender Equality
The success of CRC/TRR 247 strongly depends on the participating people. We are committed to provide comprehensive measures for equal opportunity and gender equality to all members involved in CRC/TRR 247.
The German Research Foundation (DFG) provides separate funds to make jobs in science and academia more family friendly and to support female researchers in their academic qualifications and career developments. CRC/TRR 247 scientists may apply for these fundings according to the DFG-guidelines (Deutsch, English).
