* the offer to contact the directors at any time for specific questions
* the opportunity of extended visits at a director's group (job shadowing)
* scientific talks of the fellows
* time for the fellows to talk to each other
* leadership coaching by an external moderator
To become a member, the participant must be nominated. All professors and directors of research institutions worldwide can nominate candidates. The membership of the fellows normally expires after five years. Obtainment of a permanent job automatically leads to termination.
