Since 2021 we started with a specific talent policy for scientists. Part of this policy are the talent programs we developed for PhD-students, post-doc/assistant professors, associate and new full professors.
With these talent programs we support talented (young) researchers in building their academic career. We define talent not only on the basis of measurable research output, but also based on ones contribution to Open Science, (team)leadership, valorisation and societal impact.
In the selection for the programs we take gender diversity and the cultural/international background of participants into account. All programs focus on getting to know oneself, ones ambitions and skills on how to get there. Recognition and Rewards and Open Science underline all content of the programs.
