CAREER_MENTORING III.

In 2017, the universities in Krems, Linz, and Salzburg began a new and jointly revised career development program for women scientists and academics based on the Mentoring III and karriere_links programs.

Participating mentees receive assistance and support to strengthen their career development plans by attending mentoring sessions and individual coaching sessions as well as seminars designed for doctoral and post-doctoral candidates. A joint program offers space to exchange ideas in various subject areas, career stages, and strengthens interuniversity networks.

The program aims increase the proportion of women in leading academic/scientific positions. The career development program has been designed to offer participating women scientists and academics opportunities to help advance their academic careers.
