P-7: Equal opportunity and university development 2017-2020

This programme is funded within the framework of the federal project contributions 2017-2020. The implementation and the financing of the project contributions 2017-2020 are subject to the decisions of the Parliament.

The "Equal opportunity and university development" programme aims to ensure an even number of men and women in higher education and is also concerned with other aspects of inequality and diversity at universities. The programme helps to secure equal opportunity by means of action plans (a proven tool) and facilitates collaborative beacon projects across universities and other higher education institutions.

Module A - Actions plans

The action plans will finance university activities that ...

... engage with general frameworks and decision-making processes at the levels of organisational management and culture, and which thereby facilitate institutional change and learning processes. The goal is to better integrate equal opportunity into the universities’ central processes and development.



The call for tender has been closed

Deadline for applications: 7 October 2016

Decisions: End of November 2016

The action plans are to be submitted by filling in the appropriate forms. The forms as well as further information and documents regarding the call for tender can be downloaded below.
