Frequently asked questions

The toolbox is an online information system that presents selected real-life examples of gender equality measures within the German research system.

The models in the toolbox are selected in a quality-assured process – both to ensure that the chosen examples are of high quality and sufficient diversity and to prevent duplication in terms of content.
