Leibniz Mentoring Network

Activities of the Network offer opportunities to mutually continue one’s studies, to increase and to intensify one’s contacts and to share expertise and skills with others. After having successfully participated in Leibniz Mentoring, the mentees are invited to join the Leibniz Mentoring Network as alumnae. It offers a platform for questions about career development and leadership in science and for professional exchange across disciplinary boundaries as well as room for joint project initiations.

Leibniz Annual Reunion and Network Meeting

Once a year, the Leibniz Association invites all alumnae of the Leibniz Mentoring programme to an annual gathering where they can reconnect with members of their own group of mentees as well as get to know colleagues who participated in the programme in other years. After the constitutive meeting in March 2017, following network gatherings move around and take place at different Leibniz-Institutes of former Leibniz Mentees. Apart from facilitating professional exchanges and further training, these gatherings thus also offer insight into the sheer scope of fascinating research conducted at Leibniz.

Periodic virtual regulars' tables – with defined topics as well as open ones – supplement the exchange of information.
