The EADI Mentoring Programme “Develop Your Talents” provides young scholars with the chance to exchange with someone further advanced in their career. The mentoring does not offer professional coaching to the mentees, but accompaniment on a younger sister/elder sister level. As some of our mentors are also active in the Working Groups, opportunities for further collaboration may arise.

About this Working Group

The emphasis of this Working Group has been on studying industrialization strategies of developing countries. The group examines alternative industrialization strategies, the impact of structural adjustment on industrialization, the flexible specialization and industrial districts, the role of innovation and the importance of export for small and medium-sized enterprises. The group organizes regular seminars and maintains contacts between members. Six seminars have resulted in books. The group also maintains a think tank on the Oneworld Website.
