Calling all women: We want you!

»More women in applied research«

We want to inspire young women to join our field of research and support female students and scientists on their career paths. We ensure equal pay for men and women at the institute with fixed compensation levels. We support family planning with flexible working time models that allow you to keep leading exciting projects.

We are already working to increase the proportion of female scientists across all career levels with internal Fraunhofer support programs. To this end, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft founded the TALENTA structural program, of which Fraunhofer HHI has been a member since 2013.
