Parenting assistance from the home universities' EO offices and the SNSF

LIVES collaborates with the equal opportunity offices at the University of Lausanne and the University of Geneva to offer its employees of both sexes a number of measures to support parenting, and information and the means to better reconcile work and family life:

The SNSF offers flexibility grants aimed at PhD students and postdoctoral researchers who need to look after children. The applicants are employed with a work-time percentage of at least 80% in a NCCR, they are pursuing an academic career and are the main carer (as of 50%) of their children until the beginning of their compulsory education (incl. compulsory Kindergarden). For more information, see the intranet.
