Novatech mentoring and Career workshops

The Novatech conferences offer great opportunities to make first steps into the professional career. We are pleased to systematically welcome a significant portion of internationally recognized scientific and operational experts and fortunate to welcome many young water professionals: in 2016, 150 participants out of the 500 declared themselves Young Water Professionals (YWP - age below 35).

For this edition, we would like to promote and improve the exchange between Young Water Professionals and experienced members of the community by offering two new opportunities: a one-day mentoring and two career dating workshops.

Experienced attendees - academics, industry members or civil servants - give young water professionals the opportunity to meet you and take advantage of your knowledge, expertise and network! Discover the profiles, points of view and expectations of your future young colleagues!

Young water professionals, make the most of Novatech! This edition of Novatech offers you the unique opportunity to meet experienced professionals - researchers, consultants and civil servants - and to benefit from their experience and their network!

Pre-register for taking part in these new dynamic! Please indicate your choices: dates, language and careers. We will try to match supply and demand and provide you with more detailed information on how to get in touch between mentors and mentees, and about the career workshop details closer to the conference.

Dear experienced attendee of Novatech,

Your task: simply give a Young Water Professional the chance to follow you through one conference day. You will meet in the morning, have a coffee together for introduction, go to the same sessions and spend your lunch break together. Of course, you will keep all your other usual activities during Novatech: attending sessions, visiting posters, discussing with colleagues, participating in workshops or group meetings, etc.
Your mentee will profit from meeting you, getting to know your field of work and discovering your professional network. Reciprocally, you will get a better idea of the interests of our young colleagues and get the chance to meet future co-workers or employees.

Dear experienced attendee of Novatech,

 Your task: participate in one of the YWP Career Workshop (45 minutes) as an experienced attendee and answer questions from a group of Young Water Professionals on your career, your job and activities, your professional choices, your vision of the field, your suggestions for them as an academic, a consultant, an operator, a regulator, etc. Reciprocally, you will have the opportunity to meet motivated and curious young colleagues, with the possibility to keep contact and continue the discussion after the YWP Career Workshop.
