The success of the Seminar is linked to the active participation of senior professionals (‘tutors’), and in particular to the advices and feedbacks they may give before and during the seminar to the young researcher.

The tutors are senior researchers, holding a PhD or having comparable proven expertise. They are very well experienced in research, presentation and paper writing and have teaching, supervising and/or training competences.

The tutors are expected to train, support, and help the young researchers to progress in their writing and communication skills. Furthermore, they have a key role in motivating, inspiring and empowering the young generation to enjoy research and embrace a scientific career.
