The universities of Kiel and Lübeck have a very strong and committed interest in promoting female scientists. They have established family-friendly conditions for studying, teaching and research. Special funding for these purposes will be used by the Research Training Group to offer courses and training sessions in transferrable skills, and we will support scientists to nadle both their scientific work as well as their family obligations.
