Equal Opportunities

»More women in applied research«

This is an important goal of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft as well as the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute.

In order to achieve this goal, we try to attract female students to natural and technical-science programs starting in primary school, to improve employment figures for female scientists, and to increase the number of female scientists at every career level thanks to internal Fraunhofer support programs.

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft specifically founded the TALENTA structuring program to promote this goal; the Fraunhofer HHI has been a member since 2013.
