All our members choose a mentor who will act as a discussion partner during the whole duration of the PhD project. This mentor needs to be selected from another work group to guarantee a more objective position in the rare but mind-troubling situation of a personal or professional crisis.
The mentor should best be on the same career level as the member's supervisor in order to ensure an equivalent perspective when giving advice.
In our mentoring guideline we explain what mentoring is aiming at and how mentor and mentee can profit from this relationship even sometimes far beyond a PhD project.
