Mentoring and Training

Minerva – FemmeNet:
Mentoring Network of the Max Planck Society for the Promotion of Female Junior Scientists
Minerva-FemmeNet is a network for female scientists at the Max Planck Society, which was set up at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysics in Frankfurt in early 2001. The idea behind this project is to use the experience of highly qualified female scientists - including former employees at Max Planck Institutes - for the benefit of young women scientists at the institute through a mentoring relationship. The network is open to all women scientists - from graduate to top qualified scientist - working at the Max Planck Society.
