Final Report - EUMENT-NET (Building a European Network of Academic Mentoring Programmes for Women Scientists)

Project ID: 36682
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

At the beginning of the 21st century, a closer look at the situation of many mentoring programmes reveals that in many cases, even after years of successful practice, they are not financially secured on a long-term basis and their position inside the academic institutions often remains precarious. Furthermore, and notwithstanding the apparent popularity of mentoring, in many countries of the European Union, mentoring programmes for the promotion of women in academia and research are still scarce or non-existent.

The project partners' aim was to create a basis that will strengthen existing mentoring programmes in an evolving European Research Area (ERA) and promote mentoring as an effective tool for promoting gender equality in academia and research. Outlined in their final report is the fact that now such a European network has successfully been established, taking the form of an association constituted under Swiss law, and is now ready to expand. Also included are photos and images.
