REsearchers BEyond aCAdemia mentoring programme



Have you ever received an inspiring not-so-expected piece of advice that at some point could change your life?

Researcher professional lives are versatile and diverse. Their competencies 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 young researchers reflect about their options beyond academia. During 6 months, this programme will put in touch early-stage researchers working in academic institutions with highly skilled professionals working 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.

What do you need to do?

  • If you are a mentor, please bring your experience and get ready to share it.
  • If you are a mentee, please come with interest and be open to explore what exists beyond academia.

If you would like to participate as a mentor or as a mentee in the programme, please, send an email to and they will get in touch with you.

For more information, please see the attached leaflet.
