acadeMIA is a unique program offered at the University of Mannheim bringing together inspiring female early-stage researchers. In addition to providing a wide range of input during the workshops, the program also contributes to the creation of a group cohesion that lasts beyond acadeMIA!
acadeMIA has been rewarding for me, both from a professional and from a personal perspective. During the training program, I was able to further develop my professional skills and improve the perception of my strengths. In addition, I came into contact with many fascinating young female researchers from various disciplines, thus expanding my horizon enormously. Working with them and the coaches was great fun!
The acadeMIA program was very helpful for both my professional and personal development. Thanks to the program, I was able to build a network of women from different disciplines, and the exchange of ideas stimulated exciting interdisciplinary research questions. In addition, I also made some friends during the program, which I still cherish very much even years later.
