The guideline manual is a major tool for the transfer of knowledge and experience using mentoring as a measure to promote women in academia and research. It is based upon a comparison between four existing mentoring programmes at universities in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.

The manual also provides a basis for transferring expert knowledge on mentoring to countries where there is as yet no mentoring scheme, as demonstrated in the example of Bulgaria.

It provides examples of best practice in how to design, implement, and prepare the ground for mentoring programmes under specific conditions at local, regional, and national levels.
