DFG Online Event: Relevance of Sex, Gender and Diversity in Research
In order to improve the quality of research and avoid “blind spots”, the DFG suggests that sex, gender and/or other dimensions of diversity be adequately taken into consideration in the content of research projects. Where such dimensions are relevant, the consideration of it can have concrete implications for the planning, implementation and outcomes of a research project: they might influence the formation of hypotheses, be reflected in the selection of methods and categories of analysis, or have an impact on the creation of data sets.
This checklist issued by the DFG provides points of reference as to whether sex, gender and/or diversity are relevant to a research project and therefore proposal submission, enabling applicants to examine these aspects in the planning phase of their project.
Interested researchers from all disciplines, academic managers, and coordinators are cordially invited to attend this event. Questions and discussion are invited; please feel free to send specific questions in advance.
