As of July 2019, TU/e has launched the Irène Curie Fellowship. This program is aimed at talented women who pursue an academic career in our European top research university.
This led to a case at the Netherlands Institute for Human Rights, which concluded last year that the program was not proportional. The university therefore drafted a revised version of the policy and submitted it to the CRM for review.
The Netherlands Institute for Human Rights now concludes that the revised program does not make prohibitive distinctions based on gender. In addition, the CRM judgment offers TU/e a number of tips to make the Irène Curie Fellowship program as effective as possible. The program will start again soon.
