Support for Researchers

Consulting on Gender Aspects in Research

At TU Dortmund University, you can already benefit from a wide range of support services regarding gender aspects in research.

The Office of Research Support Services offers comprehensive support in all matters relating to research. This offer also includes interdisciplinary advice on the application of gender-differentiated third-party funded projects in the department of funding advice (Head: Dr. Heike Wulfert) .

Your funding advisor will be happy to help you in this regard! The contact persons of the Grants Services for the different departments can be found on the website of the Office of Research Support Services.

The Center for Entrepreneurship & Transfer (CET) helps with the transfer from research to business and society and supports those interested in founding a company with the implementation of their business ideas. This also includes the transfer of results of gender-differentiated research with (market) potential into economy and society and the support of Female Founders in start-up consulting as well as with a special workshop program.

You are welcome to contact Dr. Christoph Besenfelder (Head of the Innovation and Transfer Management Team: christoph.besenfeldertu-dortmundde) or Kim Phuong Pham (Founder Consulting: kim.phamtu-dortmundde) for more information.

The data protection staff in the Office of Central Services support researchers at TU Dortmund University in all questions concerning the complex field of data protection. This service also includes individual consultations on the handling of gender-differentiated data collected in the course of research projects.

You are welcome to contact the data protection officer of TU Dortmund University and his team (datenschutzbeauftragtertu-dortmundde) for this purpose. Early consultation is expressly recommended.

A related but quite different question is the issue of equality and diversity in the science system. The Staff Unit Equal Opportunities, Family and Diversity as well as the central and decentralized Equal Opportunities Officers  at TU Dortmund University will be happy to provide you with information and advice.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Campus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Campus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Campus to South Campus by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Campus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund University has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
