Launch of national action plan for diversity and inclusion in scientific education and research

Minister Van Engelshoven, from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, has set out a number of ambitious goals to create a more diverse, inclusive and safe learning and working environment in scientific education and research.

The five goals for 2025 are:

  • To embed diversity and inclusion in the assessment of research proposals and accreditations.
  • To improve monitoring of diversity in education and research, including social security and inclusion.
  • Establish an awards system to make policy and funding diverse and inclusive.
  • To bundle diversity plans of different institutions, so that there can be more cooperation.
