Applications in this funding line must be submitted together with applications in the “Provision of a 0.5 academic staff position/staff appropriations pool for female graduates” and “Support for female junior professors and postdoc students through 0.5 academic staff positions” funding lines as a complete package by the faculties to the Executive Board, which decides on the allocation of funding. Applications can be submitted to the Executive Board via the respective dean’s office by 15 June of each year. The relevant faculty closing dates for submissions for internal shortlisting will be announced by each dean’s office. The funding provided must generally be spent in the 12 months following the application deadline.
If there are several applications, the faculty must prioritise these and justify their choices. The shortlist (max. 3 applications) for submission to the Executive Board should be drawn up by the faculty in co-operation with the Equal Opportunities Officer.
Applications must be accompanied by a plan setting out the specific measures for which the funding is required and a budget plan. Applications may be submitted for funding for measures in line with the Equality Concept, in particular measures to promote female early-career researchers and junior academics. These should be new measures or measures to complement existing measures. Where the objectives of these measures overlap with any other schemes or programmes (e.g. the Committee for Research and Junior Academics’ research reserve), it should be made clear why funding is sought in the context of equality.
The following documents must be enclosed with the application:
- Plan for the equality opportunities measures for which funding is sought
- Budget plan
