Empower Talent! Mentor scheme

Next registration deadline: November 17, 2020


The idea behind the Empower Talent! initiative is - as indicated by the title – to empower talent at AU.

"The university's goal is to give all researchers the opportunity to realise their potential and develop professionally..... This applies to early career researchers at postdoc and assistant professor level, established researchers with permanent positions and research directors."
(Quote, AU's strategy 2025)

This is one of the strategic objectives in the AU Strategy with the aim to ensure diversity among research talents. 

AU's strategy 2013-2020 also identifies further development and improvement of the work and study environment as one of the most important preconditions for the strategy to succeed.

The intention behind the Empower Talent! initiative is to contribute to retaining and developing talent, while also contributing to ensuring diversity and creating an attractive work environment at Aarhus University.

Who can participate?

Empower Talent! matches employees at assistant professor level (assistant professor/researcher/post doc) with more experienced colleagues at associate professor level or professor level.

For mentees it is also a prerequisite  that there remains at least 10 months of the employment relationship.
