EANO is pleased to support young clinicians and researchers in the field of neuro-oncology through a Mentorship Programme. Individuals across the spectrum of neuro-oncology – from basic scientists with various interests to clinicians of all allied health professional (AHP) or medical disciplines are invited to apply as a mentee. The mentor-mentee pair will work together for a year and develop a project proposed by the mentee, determined at the outset.
The mentee will be able to choose up to three mentors from the pool of volunteer mentors. The preferences will not be binding to EANO and will depend on the availability of the mentor and the best fit with the project, but there will be an effort to satisfy them.
As a mentee you will be able to gain experience and learn and develop new skills by developing a project under the guidance of an experienced mentor. This may be setting up a laboratory or clinical project, writing a grant application or a manuscript, or another project you may jointly define.
You will meet your mentor virtually, monthly for an hour or as deemed appropriate by the mentor, depending on the project being developed, the idea being that you will complete this project in the span of one year. The mentee will have the obligation to present two interim reports and the final product to EANO.
Projects are meant to be the vehicle through which mentees acquire organizational skills for project management, as well as pure neuro-oncology-related knowledge.
Mentees must be members of EANO. If suitable, the projects will be eligible for selection to be presented at the EANO annual meeting.
If you are interested in joining the mentorship programme, please send an email including the information below and a brief CV to firstname.lastname@example.org

EANO is Europe’s multidisciplinary Neuro-Oncology organisation representing all medical and scientific disciplines involved in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of tumours of the central nervous system (CNS). EANO is dedicated to promote advances in Neuro-Oncology through innovative research and concerted education and training. It enhances collaboration between all relevant disciplines - Neuro-Oncology, Neurosurgery, Neuropathology, Neuroradiology, and Radiation Oncology as well as Nursing - and aims at bridging science, knowledge and practice gaps in the management of CNS malignancies.
Today, EANO has over 700 members from more than 70 countries. EANO stimulates (inter)national cooperation together with our major partner societies, the Society of Neuro-Oncology in the US (SNO) and the Asian Society of Neuro-Oncology (ASNO); together, EANO, SNO and ASNO are charter societies of the World Federation of Neuro-Oncology Societies (WFNOS).
EANO provides multiple services to its members. We organise scientific and educational webinars and meetings with 'state of the art' lectures covering the broad spectrum of all disciplines in Neuro-Oncology, including our flagship annual EANO Meeting and the quadrennial WFNOS Meeting.
Further, EANO offers exclusively to its members free access to Neuro Oncology, Neuro Oncology Practice and the Neuro Oncology Advances Journals.
EANO considers the preparation of multidisciplinary guidelines as a prime task to support the development of high quality care for brain tumour patients across Europe. The EANO Youngster Initiative is a highly active platform for exchange, networking and career support for young clinicians and scientists. We also offer high level post-graduate education through the EANO School of Neuro-Oncology launched in 2022 and strongly support increasing diversity in the Neuro-Oncology community.
