About: What is the F3G consortium?
The „Forschungsverbünde der Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg zur Förderung der Gleichstellung“ (“research consortia for promoting equality at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg”, F³G) are an alliance of various collaborative research projects at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg and Universitätsklinikum Erlangen. As well as encouraging collaboration between the groups, the objective of the alliance is to ensure that funds for promoting equality are used correctly and for the purpose set out in the guidelines.
Funding is provided for a wide range of measures aimed at improving equal opportunities, balancing research and family, encouraging female students to study STEM subjects, increasing the proportion of women in collaborative research projects, and supporting the careers of young female researchers.
As well as the jointly planned measures, F³G also offers a platform for sharing experiences with individual measures as well as the option of working together to explore and launch new, far-reaching measures together.
F³G strives to implement a number of further innovative measures in close partnership with relevant institutions at FAU and Universitätsklinikum Erlangen, in particular the Office of Equality and Diversity and the Family Service.
