At the beginning, all participants will take part in an introductory workshop to help prepare for their role as a mentor. Afterwards the mentees will be assigned to their mentors based on field of study and interest. A common launch- and closing event forms the framework for the mentoring relationship.
In regular meetings the mentor shares their personal as well as occupational experiences with the mentee and offers support and advice. Ideally, the meetings take place around every six to eight weeks.
The choice of subject is dependent on the interests and the advice needed by the students. A choice of questions will be developed during the introductory workshop.
The mentees have the possibility to accompany the mentors during typical work phases (meetings, conferences, workshops…). This way, the mentees gain insight into academic work and research routines.
