MAP Programme for the Promotion of Families,
Women and Early-Stage Researchers (MAP-FNN)

Promotion of gender equality between women and men at work is an important factor to increase quality in terms of research and teaching in the long term. Specific measures guarantee to exploit the maximum potential of existing talent. The aim of the MAP Programme for the Promotion of Families, Women and Early-Stage Researchers (MAP-FFN) therefore is to further promote gender equality, to facilitate the reconciliation of work and family life and to remove barriers on the academic career pass resulting from parenthood.

The main goals of the MAP Programme for the Promotion of Families, Women and Early-Stage Researchers (MAP-FFN) are:

(1) Encouraging and supporting female and male scientists with children

(2) Increasing the proportion of female scientists, especially those who hold a habilitation, a professorship or those who hold an academic leadership position

(3) Giving special support to female and male doctoral candidates as well as young female and male postdocs

Further objectives are:

(1) Increasing the percentage of female PhD’s within the cluster of excellence to 30 percent

(2) Encouraging female school students to take a long-term interest in natural sciences and technology (e.g. by organizing events like the “Girls’ Day”)

(3) Supporting female project leaders, postdocs and PhD students (e.g. female "chairpersons" in meetings)

(4) Inviting female speakers and guest researchers from abroad

Measures:

(1) Examining the percentage of female applicants for all open positions

(2) Offering internships to female students

(3) Connecting people with partner schools

(4) Guaranteeing the presence of a (if necessary, external) qualified female professor in all appointment committees as well as to the equal opportunity officer in all nomination committees

(5) Exempting the equal opportunity officer from other duties

(6) Mandatory tutorials and seminars for PhD students to promote young scientists (female and male)

(7) Nominating at least two female members for each board or committee

(8) Family-friendly schedule planning
