Working group: Champions Programme

Growing leaders through mentorship

The working group will focus on the development and implementation of the Digital Humanities/Computational Social Sciences Champions programme.

Based on the ESCALATOR project plan, we will develop a mentorship programme for researchers from any career stage wanting to become a leader at their organisation in terms of digital and computational research methods. The programme will be rolled out in various phases:

  • development of the mentorship programme including: (i) a programme for equipping mentors; and (ii) programme for empowering mentees
  • first intake of mentors
  • first intake of mentees
  • reflect on first intakes and adjust programme based on lessons learned
  • second intake of mentors
  • second intake of mentees
  • reflect on second intakes and report on lessons learned for future programmes.
