European Mentoring Summit 2018

March 14 to 17, 2018 at the Humboldt University of Berlin

You want to strengthen your network, get to know the diversity of the mentoring scene, gain or pass on new insights from research and science? Then the 3rd European Mentoring Summit will be a great opportunity to do so.


From March 14 to 17, 2018 at the Humboldt University of Berlin, this summit will bring together more than 200 practitioners, scientists and educational planners from Europe and the USA under the theme "Strong Relationships for Strong Civic Societies".


As of today, the summit’s homepage is online!

Please register at and also check out all further information about the summit there.

The first summits took place in 2014 in Barcelona and 2016 in Leuuwarden in the Netherlands, and now it is coming to Germany. In addition to prominent keynotes, among others by Prof. Jean Rhodes from the Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring at the University of Massachusetts Boston, there will be “sessions” and “workshops” – each giving new impulses, important information and concrete action knowledge.


But also your own expertise is in demand: “Sessions” and “workshops” are intended to deepen topics. If you want to contribute something here, you are welcome to participate. On the website you can submit your ideas, send us blog entries about your daily mentoring experience or suggest your own session based on the open Call for Proposals under "Get Involved!”
