The goals of the Mentoring program are :
- To provide fruitful feedback and advice to the PhD students and Young Researchers on their research project and research paper incubation.
- To provide the opportunity to exchange with mentor experts from different backgrounds working on topics related to MEDES field.
- To interact and stimulate an exchange of ideas and suggestions among mentor program participants.
- To provide the opportunity to discuss concerns about research, supervision, and other related issues
To be eligible for MEDES 2017 mentoring, the candidate must be either a doctoral student or a young researcher within a recognized university or research Institute.
MEDES 2017 seeks contributions in the following areas :
