Welcome to the ARIADNETechNat mentoring programme!

The ARIADNETechNat mentoring programme supports high-potential female Master's students and young female researchers at the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Sciences throughout their academic careers. ARIADNETechNat applies the tried and tested mentoring approach. Each mentee is allocated an experienced scientist who acts as their mentor for the duration of one programme period. Rather than focussing on academic issues, the mentors concentrate on further qualifications, scientific practice and career development. The programme aims to increase the percentage of women in higher academic positions.

Mentees benefit from their mentor’s experience and knowledge, learning the ins and outs of academic research, building up a larger network with other scientists and gaining the information and soft skills that are indispensable for working in science or academia.
