Virtual Project House for Gender and Diversity in SET (Science, Engineering and Technology)
Welcome to the website of the Virtual Project House for Gender and Diversity in SET!
With our online presence we provide an overview of present and future tasks and aims of the Virtual Project House for Gender and Diversity in Science, Engineering, Technology (SET) and Medicine. At this stage, we can only offer an outlook on the future activities of the Virtual Project House, which in preparation for the second round of the Excellence Initiative is undergoing a change process.
In order successfully to address the global challenges of our time, RWTH has set itself the goal to develop into a truly integrated interdisciplinary University of Technology. In order to continue to be competitive in the future, RWTH seeks to tap and develop the potential of a community of culturally and otherwise diverse people.
Researchers from different disciplines at have commited themselves to integrate gender and diversity perspectives in their research, applied methodologies, teaching, and scientific outlook and to consider this integration of perspectives as an important cross-sectional task.
The Virtual Project House aims at interconnecting scientists and their research areas, promote interdisciplinary collaboration between them, and thus to make their work more visible to the research community.
The Virtual Project House is coordinated by the Department of Gender and Diversity in Engineering (GDE), headed by Professor Carmen Leicht-Scholten.
