Our Women Professors Forum (WPF) is part of RUB’s efforts to attract females of all ages to science, to retain women scientists, and to promote excellent individuals to the highest level of the university. The WPF supports female scientists at all stages of their careers.

Contribution to RUB: We contribute to RUB’s aim to be a better employer, provide excellent education in all faculties and areas of study, and further outstanding research that can compete in a global environment.

The RUB WPF is permanently incorporated in the structural organization of the University itself.
