Our Mission

At SciLink, we are committed to providing skills to early stage and experienced researchers through high quality workshops, mental health management, and mentoring.

Our Origins

The SciLink Foundation originated from the MSCA Innovative Training Network project, Eduworks (2013-2017), which was managed by the University of Amsterdam. Based on the needs identified in the EduWorks project, we built our current training portfolio of 16 courses focused on transversal and research career development skills.

SciLink was established as a foundation in the Netherlands in 2018. In 2020, SciLink acquired CRKBO certification.
