  • Equal opportunities as an assessment criterion in the review of research programs
  • A range of programs aimed at increasing the compatibility of family and career
  • Continuous best practice and knowledge exchange among Helmholtz Centers
  • Funding programs that specifically aim to increase the number of women in top-level positions

Promoting equal opportunity is a consistent focus across all Helmholtz talent management measures.
