The promotion of equal opportunities is an explicit commitment of all members and participating institutions involved in the CRC/TRR 205. Within the first funding period the CRC/TRR has a gender distribution among the principal investigators of 44% female PIs. Efforts to enhance gender equality at leadership levels will be vigorously pursued over progressive years of the CRC/TRR. Fifty percent of the CRC/TRR executive committee are female. Female project leaders in the consortium serve as ideal role models to encourage early-career female scientists to embark on an academic career. The proportion of women in group leader positions in the CRC/TRR is 78% and the proportion of professors is 44%. The share of DFG-funded Heisenberg-Professorships is 50-50.
The needs and experiences of researchers who are facing the challenge of combining the rearing of young children as a single parent or in an equitable parental partnership with the demands of their scientific work will provide the standard for efficacy. This is supposed to ensure the continuance of family-friendly measures throughout the duration of the CRC/TRR.
