Small groups

The participants will be divided into groups of 4-5 at the start of the study group and will stay in these groups for the week. Mentoring groups meet in the afternoon, for around three hours under the leadership of a mentor. Mentoring groups will have a chance to introduce themselves and their projects, and everyone will have a chance to discuss their projects. Mentoring groups also may include general career advice discussions. At the end of each day, groups will be asked to report back to the large group. Mentors will therefore ask for a rapporteur each day. At the end of the whole week, all participants will be asked for general feedback and reflection on the HRRS.

If you have any queries about criteria for selection or would like to discuss potential nominations, please do not hesitate to contact the IACAPAP 2018 Congress Secretariat (hrrs@iacapap2018.org).
