This pioneering incubator initiates an innovative, interdisciplinary exploration of “Time Poverty” among scientists.
The goals of this newly established incubator are:
Raise Awareness and Understanding: we want to elevate the issue of time poverty in science to a level where it receives the attention it deserves, making it a regular part of discussions about working conditions, productivity, and gender equity in academia.
Develop and Implement Solutions: we aim to bring together researchers from diverse countries and disciplines to create innovative, feasible solutions to reduce time poverty among scientists, especially women.
Inspire Policy Changes: Through our research and advocacy, we want to influence policy changes at the institutional and national levels. This could include, for instance, advocating for more flexible working hours, better childcare support, fairer task distribution, and initiatives to reduce the burden of unpaid work.
Foster Global Collaboration: we aspire to create a global network of researchers and stakeholders who are committed to addressing time poverty.
Advocate for Equity: Ultimately, the change we want to bring is a more equitable scientific community, where women researchers can thrive without being held back by time poverty. Through this incubator, we hope to contribute to a world where gender is no longer a predictor of one’s time poverty status and, by extension, one’s success in science.
