The aim of this three-year project is to create a web-based consultation and information platform for universities, based on scientific findings and surveys. The platform will, above all, present effective measures for promoting family-friendliness at German universities at various operating levels and differentiated according to target groups.
The scientific knowledge creation comprises a systematic review of national and international studies on the effectiveness of family friendly measures as well as other parallelized surveys.
Survey A - Scientific Personnel (Sample of 4 universities)
Survey B - Students (conducted by the HIS-Institute for Research on Higher Education (HIS-Institut für Hochschulforschung, HIS-HF))
The results of the scientific analyses are summarized in a multi-dimensional action compendium documenting both the effectiveness of measures as well as examples of good practice. The results and good practice examples will be made available on the online platform, along with literature references related to the topic, a consultation offer, project news and events of interest.
