CEWS’ mandate is to transfer knowledge and provide an evidence base for various topics related to gender inequalities and equality policies, including intersections of inequalities in science and research.

Our German website is an important tool for fulfilling this task. It serves as a platform for offering information services such as frequently updated, relevant news, statistics, various databases, and CEWS publications, all related to our main area of interest and our expertise.

Our English website is there to inform the international audience about CEWS and you can learn about the CEWS team, their expertise as well as about our current and past activities, projects and collaborations.
