More information

The scope of the AAU mentor programme is to bring researchers together across AAU for 1-1 conversations about career competencies, personal and professional development and insights.

The programme is a pilot project and therefore has a limited number of participants. The project will be evaluated by the end of 2020.

The programme is a collaboration between AAURA and the AAU Committee for Equality and Diversity. Read more about the mentor programme on the AAURA webpage.
