Euraxess Top III Project (funded by the European Commission in the framework of Horizon 2020)

The project analysed the dual career landscapes in six European countries from 2016 to 2018 with international experts*: Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria and Germany. The aim of the project was to provide recommendations for the establishment and expansion of dual career services that take into account different national framework conditions. The final report is available for download here.

GENDER-NET was the first network in the European Research Area dedicated to the promotion of opportunity and gender justice through structural changes in scientific institutions and the integration of gender studies.

The DCND participated as an observer in this transnational pilot project initiated by the European Commission from 2013 to 2016. It succeeded in establishing the support of dual career couples as a central and equal opportunity offer for mobile researchers.

Young Researchers in Europe

The European Young Researchers Platform is a joint internet portal for science organisations. Some of these organisations have joined forces to promote the career opportunities and mobility of young researchers* in Europe.

The initiatives of the individual organisations are thus to be bundled and the activities carried out more efficiently. For example, the Europe-wide recognition and transferability of social benefits will be promoted.

Donors’ Association for the Promotion of Sciences and Humanities in Germany

The Stifterverband has set itself the goal of renewing the structure of the higher education system in Germany and improving the framework conditions for science. Against this background, the Dual Career Network Germany was financially supported by the Stifterverband in its start-up phase.
