Project ID: 36688
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

Following generation of female students find more female scientists as positive role models, networking between female scientists becomes possible if there are more than only single women in a special scientific field, and by increasing the number of female professors at a long-term high-potential female scientists can be attracted for science. With the development and implementation of TANDEMPLUS IDEA a modular mentoring and personal development scheme female scientists are promoted to apply for and to obtain a professorship in natural science and engineering.

As a pilot project for international mentoring, TANDEMPLUS IDEA was evaluated scientifically and its results presented in this report. The evaluation served to adapt the programme to the needs of its participants, but also to further develop the concept mentoring on an international basis. Because of its positive evaluation results, TANDEMPLUS IDEA can be seen as a model of best practice for an international mentoring programme, and will continue to the discussion on mentoring and scientific career development in the future.
