Diversity in science and research

The subject of diversity includes many different aspects and perspectives and, as such, represents a major challenge to science and research. In order to ensure that future debates and developments reflect all relevant social issues and parameters, it is essential that these same issues and parameters are also adequately represented within the area of science and research. For more information on these issues, please go to the DFG (German Research Foundation) website.
