DFG places greater focus on diversity in its funding activities
The German Research Foundation (DFG) is sending a clear signal for the promotion of diversity in science and research with a new initiative. In order to take diversity into account, the so-called "research-oriented equality standards" have been expanded accordingly to include the aspect of diversity. In addition to gender equality, diversity aspects will also become a stronger focus of the DFG's funding activities and objectives in the future.
A detailed description of the "Research-Oriented Equality and Diversity Standards" can be found on the DFG website.
