In 2019, the RQR designed its Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) policy. The RQR is a network that aims to be diverse and attractive.

Our objectives

  1. Educate RQR members about EDI challenges in the workplace

  2. Promote EDI within the network

  3. Maintain and develop an inclusive environment



The RQR EDI committee includes researchers, students and administrative staff.


The RQR’s EDI activities are also very diverse. Webinars, conferences at annual symposia, and participation in EDI activities outside of RQR are organized. Parental and recruitment scholarships are offered. An educational tool for the scientific community is being developed.


Scholarships offered by the RQR EDI commitee are available here:
