Instrumentenkasten zu den Forschungsorientierten Gleichstellungsstandards der DFG (DFG Toolbox)
In December 2007 the Executive Committee of the German Research Foundation (DFG) established a commission of experts to develop research-oriented standards on gender equality. The proposed standards were discussed by the DFG’s General Assembly on 2 July 2008, where the majority of the member institutions spoke in favour of the draft, voluntarily committing themselves to implementing the standards. The DFG provides advice and support to the member institutions.The toolbox for the DFG’s Research-Oriented Standards on Gender Equality, which was introduced in July 2009, serves as an important resource across Germany’s scientific community. It contains a collection of equal opportunity measures at German Universities, providing practical examples and many helpful tips.
