FinEd Newsletter 1/2017


This is a FinEd Newsletter. Newsletters are sent to all members of the FinEd Network via contact persons in each university and published on the FinEd website.

Mentor pool now in English, guidelines updated

The FinEd mentor pool is now also available in English on the webpage of the FinEd. There are also new guidelines for the doctoral candidates for contacting a mentor. Thus, the following instructions should be followed:
Instruction for the contacts for the doctoral candidates:
  1.  FinEd mentors do not offer official supervision of the doctoral thesis which is the responsilibity of the supervisors nominated by the faculty. Therefore, it is good to discuss and get a recommendation of one's own supervisor for the contact with the FinEd mentor.
  2. When you contact the mentor found on the list of the FinEd network, please mention that you are a member of the FinEd network.
  3. The mentor pool should be used preferably during the annual FinEd seminars and the FERA Conference, and only restrictedly during other times.

In the next Newsletter, there will be a short survey of the use of the mentor pool for both doctoral candidates and members of the mentor pool.
