2. Creation of a list of potential Mentors, with the description of their area of expertise.

*selected Mentees will have to be accepted by their allocated Mentor. After being officially accepted to the Programme, the Mentee will have to approach the Mentor with the plans for the Mentoring relationship.


2. Establishing the expectations

MP expectations should be established by Mentor/Mentee pair at the beginning of the Programme.

1. Establishing a plan of collaboration

2. Establishing a timeline to undertake specific projects considering that the MP lasts for 2 years

3. Establishing the frequency of contact between a Mentee and a Mentor


3. Sustaining the relationship

1. Communication is the key. Respecting the expectations communicated in the initial step. Circumstances change for both parties and as a result, the agreed communication schedule may change. Communicate these changes to prevent frustration from both parties.

2. Creating the opportunities for scientific collaborations (e.g. submitting a proposal for a hot topic review to be considered for publication in EAACI journal,  submitting a research abstract to an EAACI meeting)

3. Creating the opportunities for an in--‐person meeting between a Mentee and a Mentor, in addition to online contact (e.g. the mentee can apply for a travel grant/scholarship for an EAACI meeting where the mentor will be present)

4. Creating the opportunities to apply for possible financial educational opportunities with EAACI: e.g. EAACI Short/Medium/Long Term Research Fellowships or Clinical Fellowships.
