VU University Amsterdam has launched the Fenna Diemer-Lindeboom* (FDL) chair programme in order to promote female scientific talent on its way to the top and to address the lack of female professors. Female assistant and associate professors are proposed for the FDL chair by the faculties and are appointed for a maximum period of 5 years. The FDL professor will then be offered a full professorship if she has performed successfully. All FDL-candidates of the first period 2005-2010 have been installed as professor during or after the FDL-professorship. The FDL chair helps faculties to identify female talent within their organization and remove the last obstacles to a full professorship.
