Prof. Dr. Peter R. Schreiner, GDCh President 2020 & 2021, about CheMento:

"The establishment of long-term and mutually supportive networks is one of the main challenges for young academics. Challenging because very good work alone does not allow admission to networks - it is a provider market. And this is exactly what CheMento serves, where experienced colleagues and colleagues make the offer to become part of strong networks. Participation increases the chances of a predictable and successful Career. This is a service that is adapted to the times and of great value. "
