The promotion of equal opportunities is an explicit commitment of all members and participating institutions involved in the CRC/TRR 205. In 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 proportion 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 single parent or in an equitable parental partnership with the demands of their scientific work will provide the standard for the efficacy, and ensure the continuance of family-friendly measures throughout the duration of the CTC/TRR.
