Taskforce Mentoring

Our mission:

The taskforce "Mentoring" designs a mentoring program for current scholars of TUM: Junge Akademie. We strongly believe that mentoring offers great benefits for both parties and is a valuable part of the curriculum of TUM: Junge Akademie. Our program provides a means of initiating one-on-one contact between scholars and alumni of TUM: Junge Akademie. Thus, individual advice and inspiration can be passed on from experienced alumni to younger scholars. At the same time, mentors get a chance to keep in vivid contact with their Alma mater and can benefit from the next generation's knowledge and enthusiasm. We are proud that our planning phase turned into reality in 2019.

New tandems get started in June

Class 2023 mentor-mentee tandems have embarked on an exciting journey together. The Kick-off Event held within the Symposium in June 2023 serves as a pivotal moment for these pairs to solidify their connections and thrive in an enriching environment. Hope their journey be filled with growth, camaraderie, and success!

TUM: Junge Akademie Mentoring meets the TUM Ambassadors

In December, a cohort of world-class international researchers were invited to Munich and awarded the honorary title of "TUM Ambassador". These top international scientists participated in a get-together with a selection of our scholarship holders to exchange experiences concerning the planning of a career in academia. Since the event, many of the TUM Ambassadors stay in touch with the Junge Akademie members and provide their guidance as mentors. Taskforce Mentoring aims to transform this event into a new form of TUM:JA mentoring which in the future will build a time-shifted alternative to the usual mentoring cycle.
