Proposal abstract The project aims at strengthening the position of women scientists in academia and leading and decision-making positions, through the instrument of mentoring, by building up a network of Mentoring programmes supporting junior women scientists from various regions in the wider Europe, through the:

B. Definition of means and long-lasting structures of cooperation among mentoring programmes for high potential junior women scientists on a wider European level;
C. Strengthening women's impact on science decision-making and policy definition through mentoring and definition of standards for academic women scientists' support, by exchange of experiences and networking;
