Equal Opportunity

International scientists from all around the world work together within CEPLAS – independent of their origin or ethnic affiliation. CEPLAS strives to create the same conditions and opportunities for all members, irrespective of their sex, life situation, cultural background or age. We promote tolerance and appreciation and want to avoid unequal treatment of any kind.

This is why we have established various offers to promote greater equality and diversity within our research community. Our three main areas of activity are:
