Start of GesMINT project at RWTH Aachen University
Today, 1 July 2022, the project "Competence and Structural Development for Gender-Sensitive STEM Research at RWTH Aachen University", GesMINT for short, starts its conceptual phase. The project is funded by the BMBF as part of the "Geschlechteraspekte im Blick" guideline.
GesMINT aims to develop competences and structures regarding the gender dimension in STEM research across both departments and disciplines in order to anchor this sustainably in research at RWTH Aachen University.
The concept phase, which will run until January 2023, will be used to identify needs at the RWTH's research units (departments, faculties, profile areas) and to sensitise multipliers in pilot workshops. This process will be officially launched with a Kick-Off on 18 August 2022.
