Professor Schraudner is head of the department of Gender and Diversity in Organisations at the Institute for Machine Tools and Factory Management of the Technische Universität Berlin (TUB). Her research currently focuses on the integration of different perspectives in the innovation process already in very early stages of research planning. This requires a systematic involvement of potential users and a continuous dialogue between different kinds of sciences and stakeholders on the one hand, and the readiness to integrate different perspectives in the decision making processes on the other. Another field of her work are innovative research initiatives. One of her key interests is to develop strategies to guarantee effective and result-oriented cooperation among researchers, decision makers, funding institutions and other financial contributors to research. Martina Schraudner has served on several innovation committees of the German government, and is member of a European Expert Group. She has undertaken the first steps in establishing gender mainstreaming strategies for research institutions in Germany especially by integrating gender aspects in different research themes. She is a member of the genSET Science Leaders Panel. Dr Schraudner, a biologist, became Professor at the Technische Universität Berlin in 2008. She also works at the Fraunhofer Headquarters in the field of strategic research planning.
