Technische Universitaet Dresden (TUD) is one of the largest technical universities in Germany, with 14 faculties and over 42.000 students, including 5.200 international ones, and 4.700 staff members. TUD is part of a small group of 11 German elite universities, the “Universities of Excellence” and has an extensive experience in EU funded projects, having participated in over 64 Tempus and CBHE projects. TUD is strongly committed to inclusion and its aim is to enable the nondiscriminatory participation of every individual in all subjects and activities within the university. To this end, specific measures have already been implemented, like the Equal Opportunity Concept, the Plan for the Promotion of Women, the target agreement “audit family-friendly university”, the integration agreement for employees with disabilities and the internationalisation strategy. This design has proven to be very useful: on one hand, underrepresented target groups are being specifically promoted and, on the other, the funding policy at national level has a target group-specific orientation.
