The EYE (EHEDG & Young EFFoST) Mentorship Programme

Young EFFoST in cooperation with EHEDG are proud to announce our new EYE Mentorship Programme. Together, we WANT YOU to apply and be part of the Mentorship Programme

The mentorship programme pairs young professionals with experts in the field of food science and technology. In the programme, the mentee and mentor will meet regularly and work together on several topics according to their needs and preferences. One can either focus on personal development or professional growth. Intertwined with the meetings, Young EFFoST will organise events in order to deepen the connections and to create networking opportunities.

If this sounds interesting to you, please click here to get more information on the programme and for more details on the application. Registration for round 2 is now opened until  16 August 2024.

If you have any further questions related to the Mentorship Programme, please send an e-mail to YoungEffostProtected

Mentees are highly motivated young professionals working in the food industry or academia, i.e. (prospective) PhD students or early-stage Postdocs.

Through the program and the regular 1:1 meetings with their mentor, mentees will better understand their desired career path, get input for their personal development, and become more confident in their skillset and role in a professional environment.

Mentors are professionals from the field of food science and technology (or related) - from academia as well as industry, with at least 5 years of working experience. Prior mentor experience is a plus but not a must.

Through the program, mentors will get to know talented future professionals, improve their leadership and mentoring skills, and broaden their network.
