Platform for the Implementation of Research-Oriented Standards on Gender Equality
The “Platform for the Implementation of Research-Oriented Standards on Gender Equality” was initiated in 2010. It consists of representatives from the various faculties, experts, the Women's Representative, and the Staff Council. This committee fulfills an advisory function for the President and drafts a semi-annual report for the Executive Board. The scope of Platform activities is broadly conceived. It approves the reports to the German Research Foundation (DFG) regarding implementation of the research-oriented standards on gender equality, and is responsible for monitoring of the quotas with a view to increasing the participation of women at all qualification levels. Moreover, it is responsible for maintaining the university's Total E-Quality rating and for providing advise to collaborative research projects.
