PLANT 2030 ACADEMY mentoring program
The PLANT 2030 ACADEMY offers a mentoring program for early stage scientists of the BMBF funded research initiatives. In the course of one year, mentoring tandems meet and discuss issues of professional and personal development. Seminars and documents accompany the program to facilitate fruitful mentoring relationsships.
While participants in the mentoring program chose their own mentors, PLANT 2030 ACADEMY helps to establish the contact, get the mentoring phase started and provides guidance to ensure both, mentee and mentor, get the most out of this program.
Mentoring is a proven and effective instrument for the targeted promotion of young scientists. It comprises the informal transfer of experience and knowledge and on the individual support of an early career scientist (mentee) by a more experienced person (mentor). Mentoring is a process that focuses on the protected relationship between mentor and mentee - a process in which exchange, learning and experimentation take place. Potential skills and new competences can be developed.
