Young Forum Mentorship Program

Home Education Young Forum Mentorship Program

Application for the ESMAC 2018 Young Forum Mentorship Program is now closed.

Dear ESMAC attendee,


At an international congress, have you ever felt disorientated by the topics being discussed? or had the desire to form new and exciting international acquaintances, but not knowing where to begin? Well, worry no more, as we are excited to announce the return of the ever popular Young Forum Mentorship Program at the upcoming ESMAC congress in Prague.

This program provides young research-orientated attendees with the opportunity to meet and consult with senior researchers of the society, who may serve as mentors. For senior researchers, this is an opportunity to share experiences and ideas, and discover the next generation of exciting researchers. This can result in new perspectives for both mentor and mentee, whilst maintaining the informal relationship for years to come. Following last year’s program, 89% of the mentors and mentees were very likely to recommend the program to others, whilst also saying:



“A good opportunity to speak with someone experienced in the field”
“Opened a window to form connections with different experts”
“A lifetime opportunity to skip some steps on the ladder to experience”


“Continue with the mentorship program concept!”
“I liked everything about it”
“Keep up the good work”


By signing up to the program, we will help assign the optimal mentor to mentee and help arrange a first meeting during this year’s conference in Prague.

If you are interested to participate in the program, either as a mentee or as a mentor, please email the following information by August 28th to


  1. Name and institution
