The Faculty of Science wants to ensure gender equality, i.e. equal opportunities and equal conditions for men and women among its scientific staff. At the Faculty, the proportion of women at the level of assistant, associate and full professor has decreased from 17.6 % in 2010 to 16.1 % in 2012. Since gender imbalance increases with each step of the career ladder, the management group at the Faculty of Science has found it necessary to establish an equality policy.
