Heritage Space selects mentors for each edition of the open call to provide guidance to beneficiaries, addressing potential issues and opportunities that arise during project implementation. Successful mentorship requires active engagement and a positive, respectful dialogue between all parties. Mentors offer honest feedback, carefully planned sessions, and advice on realistic goal-setting, research, information access, and networking with relevant individuals or institutions. They may also provide advice on project promotion, dissemination, and communication strategies.
Our mentors for this edition are:
