GenderConsulting: Gender Equality in Research Networks Funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG)

DFG-funded research associations (SFB/CRC, FOR/RU), graduate schools and programmes as well as excellence clusters at the University of Cologne receive gender funds from the German Research Foundation (DFG), which can be used, among other things, for services in the areas of training (Female Career Center), coaching (Faculty and Academic Staff Development) and childcare (Dual Career & Family Support).
