Support from Nobel Laureates
The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings stand for the intergenerational exchange of scientists, in particular between Nobel Laureates and young scientists. Team Mentoring Hub is grateful for the support from these friends of our community. Here are a few supportive perspectives on mentoring.
Receiving good mentorship early in your career can be extremely helpful, and this is a great idea to connect talented early career scientists with a network of successful senior scientists.
Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2009
The highest scientific achievement is shedding light on an interesting process that was not well understood previously. Namely, satisfying the curiosity, which should be, and actually is, the main driving force in science.
Ada Yonath, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2009
The mentoring relationship between an experienced, older scientist and a young scientist just setting out may be the most mutually rewarding personal experience in academia – both parties benefit enormously.
Eric Maskin, Laureate in Economic Sciences 2007
Like DNA, the molecule that carries our characteristics across generations – science is also transgenerational in its nature. We are builders, laying one stone, the next generation places the following one, and the building of science is constructed and getting improved forever, there is no end to science. The success of this everlasting enterprise is critically dependent on excellent mentoring, of relaying the torch with trust to the next generation, and on the deep belief that we are only a link in this chain.
Aaron Ciechanover, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2004
About the Lindau Mentoring Hub Team
Our journey started at the first Lindau Online Sciathon in the summer of 2020: Ten Lindau Alumni, young scientists and young economists came together to work on the exciting idea of developing a platform for (aspiring) academics and scientists to find and interact with mentors.
Our goal is to make sure that you have access to the support and guidance you need, whether it is career advice, a technical problem, or a general interaction with an expert. Our project won the Lindau Guidelines category of the Sciathon 2020 and we started developing the Lindau Mentoring Hub in cooperation with the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, with support from the Dieter Schwarz Foundation.
About the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings
Since 1951, around 30-40 Nobel Laureates convene in Lindau every year to meet the next generation of leading scientists: 600 undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers from all over the world. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange between scientists of different generations, cultures and disciplines.
