Since the summer of 2008 there has been a Committee for Women's Advancement (KFF) at the department of physics. This is an advisory body to the department council. The commission is - who would have thought it - committed to the advancement of women and equal rights. That means:
- Financial support for women (participation in conferences or similar)
- Financing of visiting professors
- Support for FiNCA (women in natural sciences at the Adlershof campus, initiative to promote young female scientists)
- women- and family-friendly institute climate (e.g. baby changing room)
Election and composition
The KFF consists of 1 professor, 1 research assistant, 2 employees for technology, service and administration and 1 student. It is appointed by the department council. Subsequent designations are therefore possible at any time.
