Mentoring program: An opportunity for senior and junior researchers
Rural NEET Youth Network is launching this year calls for mentors and mentees for a mentoring program. The mentoring program aims to support Early Career Investigators (ECI), i.e. researchers up to 8 years after their PhD completion) as well as PhD students in developing research proposals on rural NEETs related topics. The mentoring scheme is intended to contribute, therefore, to develop and retain productive, professional researchers, who can reach out to the rural areas and capture the needs of youth and their specific risks and opportunities in these regions. As such, the primary focus of the program is mentoring young researchers, supporting them in the preparation of multidisciplinary research projects, by developing their interest for relevant rural topics. The focus of the program is to build upon group and peer-to-peer mentoring mechanisms. The action members will be involved in the mentoring program, to make sure that the work group results feed into the mentoring scheme, while profiting from their knowledge and experience to develop the research topics.
The program will be held between January and December 2022, including face-to-face and online events.
Do you want to become a mentor? Do you have an idea for research and need a senior researcher to help you develop your idea? Please keep tuned in, as our calls will be coming up very soon!
