Guideline for the promotion of female AI junior scientists

The project is part of the BMBF guideline for the promotion of female AI junior scientists. The guideline for the promotion of young female AI researchers aims to increase the influence of women in AI research. Groups of young female scientists from the fields of computer science, mathematics, physics, linguistics, neurosciences, cognitive sciences, psychology or related disciplines are supported, including those working on an interdisciplinary basis. These groups should each have a proportion of women of over 60 percent and be led by women.
