Membership and Commitment

Prerequisite for membership in the ProFiL Netzwerkverein e.V. is participation in the ProFiL Programme and the willingness to promote and support the goals and tasks of the association. The ProFiL Netzwerkverein e.V. is not a “service organisation”, but an interdisciplinary network of committed scholars at various career levels who voluntarily make themselves available for exchange and consultation.

A central goal of the association is to sustainably secure and further expand the support structures of the ProFiL network, which have been developed over many years, in order to contribute to the equal participation of women in professorships and other scientific leadership positions and to promote the development of a non-discriminatory scientific culture. In order to achieve this goal, we need the commitment and creative spirit of future generations of ProFiL participants. ProFiL participants who would like to become members and thus contribute to the long-term safeguarding and further development of the network, are kindly requested to fill out the membership application form and send it to the Board of the ProFiL Netzwerkverein e.V.. By becoming a member of the association, each member accepts the Statutes of the association.

Benefits of Membership

The ProFiL Netzwerkverein e.V. develops and organises dialogue and consultation formats appropriate to the target group in order to support the further career development of its members and to promote professionalisation for scientific leadership positions such as professorships and university and science policy offices by means of peer consultation with experts and experienced decision-makers.

In addition, the association organises an annual network conference, which is an important forum for the personal exchange of ideas between members and the discussion of central higher education and science policy issues. All events of the association are financed by the contributions of the members and participants. Association members can participate in the events of the ProFiL Netzwerkverein e.V. at reduced fees.
