representation of women and men at all levels.
goal is to increase the proportion of female doctoral researchers, of female
PIs, and of female members in all boards of the TRR 154.
TRR154 has established a gender team that consists of a female and a
male PI from each of the three sites, i.e., six PIs in total. It aims
at implementing structures for supporting equal opportunities within
each of the member sites, equal opportunities offices are at the
TRR's disposal that offer different services for its university
members. Furthermore, the TRR154 has financial resources with
which it finances equal opportunities measures and provides
comprehensive support for its members at all levels of their academic

important to increase the career chances of young female researchers. As an example, the TRR 154 makes funds available for:
