Gender Equality

The physics department supports the career development of female students and staff, and promotes awareness in questions of gender equality. Our equal oppportunities plan is drawn every two years, containing the main goals and specific actions.

The equal opportunities plan undergoes a constant quality management through the equal opportunities comission, which optimizes resources, processes and monitors actions. Due to the complexity of this task, the Physics Department has its own Equal Opportunities Officer, who is available as contact person, organizer of events and ongoing compiler of ideas for the equal opportunities plan.

For young female scientists and students, it can be interesting the information on jobs, support of positions, child care services and scholarships.

Equal Opportunities Plan

Every two years a new Equal Opportunities Plan is drawn. The current plan is from 2013.
