About the European Mentoring Summit
The European Mentoring Summit is a biennial event that aims to connect people and projects from Europe and abroad who work in the mentoring sector in order to establish connections and share research and practice experiences. Every event has a mentoring-related theme and highlights special keynote speakers and activities.
European Mentoring Summit 2022
"Linking formal and informal mentoring in a holistic approach"
Mentoring can build solid bridges between schools, social partners, businesses and families and it helps to create inclusive eco-systems. By connecting the world of formal and informal mentoring, we can work together for the benefit of mentees. We learn from each other, on all levels, in an integrated way.
For this reason, we have chosen ‘Linking formal and informal mentoring in a holistic approach’ as major theme for the 4th EUROPEAN MENTORING SUMMIT. Keynote speakers and session leaders will challenge our understanding of how and under which conditions mentoring works. Practice – research collaborations will be introduced, offering us new insights and success strategies. European mentoring programmes will present their unique methods, tools, organizational models and activities. Altogether, the event will bring together 250+ people from Europe and beyond.
The 2022 EUROPEAN MENTORING SUMMIT is the 4th edition after the summits in Barcelona (2020), Berlin (2018) and Leeuwarden (2016). The 2022 summit will be hosted in Leeuwarden, in the North of the Netherlands, by Mentoring Europe, in collaboration with International Affairs of NHL Stenden University.

Due to the Covid pandemic, the most recent EMS was executed online instead of live. However, many practitioners, researchers and others managed to come together to share knowledge and stories and to connect with each other. We heard, amongst others, Patrick Dolan, Jean Rhodes and Òscar Prietro-Flores as keynote speakers, while discussing the following subjects:
- Research-practice Partnership
- Mentoring and Socio-Cultural Diversity
- Mentoring & Gender
- Methodologies & Ethics on Mentoring
