In order to provide a clear and defined structure of supervision, every Doctoral Researcher in the HEiKA Graduate School has a Mentoring Committee, which they choose together with their supervisor in order to ensure expert advice and guidance.

These individual Mentoring Committees regularly consist of the supervising PI, one or two PIs that are topically close and one Postdoctoral Researcher. The structure of the Mentoring Committee aims at increasing cross-thrust collaborations and provides multiple angles of feedback to the mentee.

The Mentoring Committee meets with the Doctoral Researcher annually to discuss the research progress and plan the next steps towards the doctorate.
