Diversity in the Research System
Excellent research requires diversity and originality. To ensure long-term engagement with all socially relevant areas, it is crucial that science and academia adequately represent these areas. This applies not only in an abstract structural sense, but also to the people who research and teach in these fields. The DFG believes that no one should be excluded from a career in research on the basis of academically irrelevant factors such as gender, ethnic origin, age or health.
