Germany sets out plan to boost academic workforce


Country aims to have more—and more diverse—university researchers by 2025

The German science ministry has laid out plans to increase the numbers and diversity of the country’s academic staff by 2025 through raising research spending and recruiting more international scientists. 

The Future Strategy for Research and Innovation, published last week on the ministry’s website, aims to boost the proportion of women in the academic workforce from the current 26 per cent. It also aims to raise the number of academics coming to work in Germany from abroad – currently 13.3 per cent of the academic workforce is non-German.
