Equal Opportunity

Promoting equal opportunity among researchers is one of NeuroCure's declared objectives. Women are still underrepresented at higher academic levels. To counteract this, NeuroCure has developed a diverse set of measures based on the equal opportunity strategies of its partner organizations to sustainably increase the proportion of female scientists in higher academic positions, including:

  • female postdoctoral research fellowships
  • mentoring program for female scientists
  • financial support for flexible childcare
  • actively approaching female scientists in recruitment processes
  • dual career support

Through NeuroCure's successful strategy, the proportion of female principal investigators within the Cluster has more than doubled from 12% to 25%.

Percentage of women at NeuroCure:
as of October 2020
Principal Investigators
New Junior Groups 83%
