The European Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring is the research division of Mentoring Europe. The European Center works on developing and launching research lines on mentoring, in collaboration with various European universities, research institutions and the UMB / MENTOR Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring in Boston, US. These research lines will include research on mentoring programmes and practices, in order to improve our understanding of when, why, and for whom mentoring does (not) work.
