BeWiSe mentoring info session and lecture: registration open until Jan 31, 2017

  • Observatoire Royal de Belgique - Koninklijke Sterrenwacht van Belgie Ringlaan 3 avenue circulaire Brussels Belgium (map)

Building up on successful experience, we are launching a new series of mentoring for early career scientists. The information session will take place at the Royal Observatory of Belgium, on Friday, February 3, 2017. From 10:00am to 3:00 pm.  

This event will allow you to learn about the aim, benefits and set-up of the programme, to reflect on the feedback of mentors and mentees, to share your expectations and... to meet a potential mentor. The lecture provides insights into a topic relevant to BeWiSe objectives. 

We welcome mentees (in particular women, but not exclusively) and mentors (both genders) who would like to join this mentoring experience, as well as anyone potentially interested in a near future participation.
