The Equal Opportunities Office is committed to promoting equal opportunities between men and women in academic life, and is involved in breaking down the existing barriers.

We see ourselves as a point of contact for all employees at our university and offer advice and assistance regarding:

  • promoting women in the higher education sector (appointments, attitudes, qualification)
  • application procedures and appointment procedures for professorial positions
  • discrimination, sexual harassment, difficulties in the working environment
  • need for advisory services in relation to transgender people or transidentities
  • continuing education courses on gender-specific issues.
