What will be your role as a host and mentor?
Your role as a mentor is to engage with your candidate on a regular basis, provide encouragement and advice during the programme and attend related events. If your candidate is selected to speak at TNC, we encourage you to support him or her at the conference. Travel cost for mentors can be funded. We ask the hosting NREN to support the candidate's travel arrangements. Candidates' travel and accommodation is funded by the programme and can be reclaimed from GLAD in GN4.3 following the normal GÉANT project claimant rules and procedures.
