Transfer and Sustainability

EKfG members are active in national and European policy advice and appear at events on knowledge transfer and research transfer, some of which are broadcast on national television. Eight members of the EKfG are involved in the Handbook Interdisciplinary Gender Research (2019), through which a wide-ranging impact of the gender perspective is achieved. The lecture series “Forschungsforum Gender” (Gender Research Forum) and “Gender Aspects in Biomedical Research and Clinical Medicine” are also aimed at an interested public audience.

Ensuring the scientific sustainability of the gender perspective as a quality feature of research is the focus of the EKfG’s activities for young researchers. For example, EKfG and its members are involved in the Research Training Groups (RTG) 1613 “Risk and East Asia” (2009–2018), RTG 2167 “User-centred Social Media” (2015–2020), RTG 2484 “Regional Inequality and Economic Policy” (2019–2024) and the BMAS Junior Research Group “Migration and Social Policy: Studies on Governance, Design and Use of (Local) Social Policy in the Light of Refugee Migration” (2017–2020). A successful format continues to be the peer-organised, multidisciplinary EKfG Nachwuchsforum (Young Researchers Forum).
