The Programme

Mentoring in Academia and Science

In academia and science, structured mentoring programmes are well-proven instruments to support female scientists in non-permanent positions (mentee) in developing their academic careers. In mentoring programmes, a tailor-made individual mentoring relationship with a professor or senior scientist in a permanent position (mentor) is usually embedded in further measures for self-development and career management. Regular exchange with other mentees enables programme participants to build a collegial network.
