EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) ensures fair treatment and opportunity for all. It aims to eliminate prejudice and discrimination on the basis of an individual or group of individual's protected characteristics.

The Faculty of Medicine’s 2020-2025 Strategic Plan “Leading Innovation for a Healthier World” can only be achieved by creating a research environment where the values of inclusivity, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA) are embedded. 

On this webpage you will find the necessary training opportunities and resources to successfully address EDI criteria in your day-to-day research practices and in grant applications.
