Excellence in its diversity

What exactly is that, "excellence"? What distinguishes an excellent researcher? What are the concepts behind this term? These are the questions addressed by the university-wide research group "Critical discourse on excellence", which is coordinated by the Office for Equal Opportunities.

An initial project of the working group was the portrait series "Excellence is diverse" with over fifty portraits of members of the University of Bern who talk about career and care work, about time to think and about targeted promotion of young talent.
