Earlier this year, the Society for Free Radical Research Europe has introduced a new subcommittee dedicated to early career researchers, the ECR Subcommittee. The Subcommittee aims to create a vibrant ECR community within the SFRR-E devoted to young investigators' education and visibility. To support the next generation of redox scientists, we are excited to inform you about the launch of the Mentoring Program organized by the ECR subcommittee.
The Mentoring Program aims to match a young scientist with a mentor who is already an established scientist in academic or industrial institutions. This program is open to ALL SFRR-E members and the success of this program relies on the support of ALL SFRR-E members.
Structure of the Program
The first round of the Mentor Program will run from 1st January 2023 to the 31st of December 2023. During this period, it is recommended that the mentor and mentee have six to eight meetings via online platforms (e.g. zoom) allocating between 40 to 60 minutes per meeting.
Mentor-mentee couples will be put together by the ECR subcommittee based on individual needs described by the mentees, and the experience and trajectory of the mentors. The number of mentor-mentee couples will depend on the number of ECR and experienced researchers that register for this program and are running on a first come, first serve basis. Registration closes on the 30th of November 2022.
If you are interested to join the program as a mentor, we invite you to complete the following survey:

What is in it for me?
As a mentor, the program will not only expose you to new ideas coming from younger researchers, but it will also enhance your leadership and coaching skills and it should ultimately help to develop and retain new talent within the Society and help us to create a legacy.
As a mentee, the program offers a unique opportunity to get advice from other senior scientists, that can provide you with an additional view point, advice and support, tailored to your own needs.
More information about the ECR Subcommittee can be found on the SFRR-E website (https://www.sfrr-europe.org/index.php/sfrre/ecr-early-career-researcher), while regular updates can be found on Twitter (@SFRR_Europe) and Instagram (@sfrr_ecr).
Hope to hear from you soon,
The ECR subcommittee
