Special childcare programme at the University of Groningen
In the summer of 2010 the University of Groningen started a special childcare program offering childcare services to 1) guest lecturers/guest researchers and 2) participants of University conferences.
In its first years the program was financed through a subsidy from the Elsevier Foundation. In the meantime the costs are covered by the University itself. An important goal of the program is to support women in their academic careers, and it dovetails well with other University initiatives such as the mentoring program for female academics and the Rosalind Franklin Fellowships.
The program is organized in cooperation with the Groningen City Childcare Association (SKSG), which runs 30 day care centres for children aged 0-4, and also organizes after-school care for children aged 4-13.
