Advising on Equal Opportunity Aspects when Applying for Research Grants

Equal opportunity consideration is a criterion that can directly affect the granting or withholding of research funds by the DFG. Applications can be denied on the basis of an insufficient description or by a total lack of equal opportunity safeguards in the project proposal – as has happened in the past.

To support applicants for grant funds, and as part of their position on the DFG’s “Research-Oriented Standards on Gender Equality”, the University Executive Board decided to create advising opportunities for grant applicants with a specific focus on consideration of equal opportunity factors when submitting research proposals (such as for Collaborative Research Centers, Graduate Schools, etc.). This advising includes:

  • information about the possibility of applying for additional funding to ensure equal opportunity;
  • advice on developing Equal Opportunity Concepts (EOCs) tailored to a specific proposal
  • advice on implementing those concepts

More information on the topic of “equality between men and women in the scientific and academic communities” can be found on the DFG’s website under the topic “Promoting Equal Opportunity” (or here in German).
