Definition and Objectives:

The Mentoring Project aims to facilitate the creation of links between IAJES members. Under the umbrella of mentoring, needs, concerns, or projects can arise and can be solved without a fixed deadline. With mentoring, all participants will have the intangible reward of the benefit of the transmission of specific expertise. According to accepted definitions, Mentorship is a personal development relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person.

A mentor may be older or younger but have a certain area of expertise. Here the mentor should be a professor or researcher with experience in teaching, making research projects for industry or administration, with a high capacity of listening and high doses of empathy. A mentee should be a professor or researcher who would like to change or improve something in his or her professional life. Also, due to the reality of many IAJES institutions in developing countries, some faculty have not had the opportunity to conduct many research projects or have lost track of trends in their research areas and would like to have a mentor who can guide them to find new research topics, collaboration opportunities, and develop new skills.

Mentoring will generate mutual benefits between participants. Developing countries may particularly need the helping hands from the developed countries and developed countries can regain the hospitality and warm treatment of the developing countries. For us, mentoring is not any kind of control, nor directive leadership, nor interference with the directives received from the University of the mentee. To summarize, mentors have the experience that others, mentees, can learn from.
