Advisory boards, funding agencies and politicians see a strong need for career development programs for postdocs. To help excellent postdocs become independent and internationally networked researchers, successful applicants in competitive funding schemes, and - ultimately - professors, we will establish a network that provides funding for: (1) network activities (2) mentoring, (3) lab visits, (4) seed money for grant applications, and (5) funds for family-friendliness. The network starts with 13 high-potential postdocs (2 are financed by the project, the others by the IWM) and deals with an IWM core topic. The network will be sustained beyond the 3-year funding.
