TU Darmstadt would like to reinforce equal opportunities for men and women in all of its institutions and departments. The Gender Consulting service centre has been established in the Gender Equality Office in order to offer collaborative research consortia with a professional point of contact for gender equality-related manners and exploit synergy effects.

The base funding is guaranteed by TU Darmstadt so that research associations who are in the application phase can also use this service.

Existing DFG research associations can get involved in financing the office with a share of their gender equality funding and thus gain professional advice and support for their gender equality activities.
