Application 1: from Thiemo Voigt. Visiting female professor Xia Zhou. The group agreed to postpone the recommendation to Michael Thuné to the next meeting, until then Åsa will get more information from Thiemo regarding the content of the 2 week long visit.
Application 2: from Åsa Cajander. Visiting female researcher Christiane Grünloh. The group agrees that the visit would be more valuable if Christiane gives a talk for students at ACM. The group recommends that Michael Thuné grants the applied sum.
Application 3: from Virginia Grande. Attending the conference Frontiers in Education, Pennsylvania, USA. The group recommends that Michael Thuné grants the 50% of the applied sum.
Application 4: from Virginia Grande. Attending a PhD-course “Trajectories in contemporary gender research” in Malmö. The group discussed possible other ways of paying for this course such as FoFu-money. The group decides to recommend Michael Thuné not to grant the application.
