Translate mentoring scheme: what’s in it for me?

Do you have a professional interest in medical technology innovation?

If ‘yes’, then the Translate mentoring scheme is for you.

The Translate: Me mentoring Scheme, which develops the innovation skills and translational capability of medical technology researchers in the Leeds City Region, is open again for expressions of interest.

“Our mentoring scheme has been developed as part of Translate: Me, our wider innovation skills and development programme,” said Danielle Miles, Technology Innovation Manager for Translate. “Mentoring can bring many benefits to both mentees and mentors, by facilitating peer-to-peer learning across a variety of settings. It’s a great way to share knowledge and gain insights from other perspectives.”

The Translate team will match the needs of mentees with the skills and expertise of experienced mentors from industry, academia, clinical settings or regulatory environments, and will provide financial support for the cost of meetings between mentors and mentees – up to a maximum of £50 per person.

• If you would like to develop your innovation knowledge, skills and experience, register your interest in being mentored under the Translate programme.

• If you have innovation knowledge, skills and experience that you would like to share, become a Translate Mentor.
