The FEBS/EMBO Women in Science Award is a joint initiative of the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) and the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO). Launched in 2007, the aim of the award is to highlight the major contributions made by female scientists to life sciences research.
Mentoring is a professional relationship in which one person shares knowledge, skills and experience to assist another in progressing their personal and professional growth, and building their confidence. It should not be confused with counselling, neither is it a substitute for supervision or sponsorship. A mentor is a sounding board, someone to explore ideas with, an empathetic motivator who is able to encourage and empower the mentee to find ways of resolving issues and achieving their goals.
