The TRR 81 ‘Gender and Family Program’ serves to improve the equality between female and male scientists and to support families in their endeavour to combine job and care duties. To accomplish these goals, we dedicate our financial support to diverse activities, courses, and measures. Financial support will be endowed to members and associated members of the TRR 81 under the guidance of the DFG constitution.

Applications, questions, and suggestions should be sent to the Equal Opportunities Team and will be handled immediately.
