Gender Equality in Academia and Research
Support program Equal opportunities – Fraunhofer Society (DE)
In 2019, the Fraunhofer Society created the stimulus “BestChance” to raise awareness of gender equality measures that can be implemented in research organisations. Employees of the different institutes of the Fraunhofer Society can nominate and propose measures, teams, or a specific project or person in their institutes, and the winners receive EUR 3,000 prize money. BestChance increases the visibility of effective measures, rewards outstanding commitment to gender equality, and encourages imitation.
