Developed in 2002 as an interdisciplinary project at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, the PROfessur project was initially funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture. Since 2007, the project has been financed by the cooperating universities themselves. The project is coordinated by the office of the Central Equal Opportunities Officer at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

Why do we need the PROfessur project?
Let's take a look at the graduates in 2021: 52.9% of the
graduates were female.
including promotion: 45.9%
Full-time female professors: 27.2%
The higher the academic position, the lower the proportion of women. This is the so-called leaky pipeline. To change this, the PROfessur project supports women starting out in a professorship. These women then act as role models and profile-builders for the individual universities as later professors.
