    Who can participate?

    As a mentor, chemists with professional experience can choose from


    • economy
    • Science or
    • administration

    who are interested in advising, accompanying and motivating young chemists during the transition to professional life. You should have at least 3 to 5 years of professional experience. Furthermore, during the current program (duration: 12 months), you should have the opportunity to attend regular meetings with the assigned mentee. The form and intervals in which these meetings take place will be agreed individually.

    In addition to regular discussions, other forms of support can be chosen:


    • Accompaniment at the workplace (shadowing)
    • joint visits to events
    • Mediation of contacts
    • Project work
    • Etc.

    Please note: The wishes and expectations of the mentee applicants are the starting point of the matching. From the registrations as mentors: in, we create a pool of potential mentors. Then we try to find a: n suitable: n mentor: from the pool for the respective mentee (see also matching - who to whom ). This means that not everyone: m mentor: can also be assigned a mentee. The non-consideration is therefore expressly no assessment of the professional or personal qualifications.

    The mentoring cooperation

    The individual needs of the mentees determine the topics of the cooperation. On this basis, the tandems conclude an agreement at the beginning of the cooperation that defines the content and goals of the joint mentoring year. The form and regularity of the respective meetings in addition to the supporting program are discussed and recorded at the beginning.

    At the end of the cooperation, the tandems hold a final meeting; Mentees also create a short report on their mentoring year.
