Researchers Beyond Academia - Mentoring Programme


Euraxess Spanish coordinators are running a mentoring programme for researchers all over Europe who are interested in creating connections with organisations beyond academia. Registration deadline for researchers is December 10, 2021. Read their introduction below and click on the link to register.

Researcher professional lives are versatile and diverse. Their competences and skills are extremely valuable in many different jobs and sectors. However, early career researchers do not always have the information and contacts that give them access to these options beyond academia.

REBECA wants to facilitate that young researchers from all over Europe reflect on their options beyond academia. During 6 months, the mentoring programme will put in touch early stage researchers working in European academic institutions with highly skilled professionals working in Europe in industry, management, and other sectors beyond academia related with science, engineering, mathematics, social science and humanities disciplines.

The programme will facilitate a minimum of 6 meetings, where mentors and mentees will get to know each other, share their experiences and reflect on their professional perspectives. Organizers will provide the structure and contents to inspire a fruitful and beneficial relationship between pairs.

The programme is for you if:

  • Are you a PhD candidate, or have received your PhD within the last 8 years, and you are thinking about your next career step beyond academia?
  • Do you feel you don´t have enough knowledge about your career options beyond academia?
  • Are you interested in reflecting about how your professional skills can be applied beyond academia?
