Fellows have a supervisor, who is a researcher at DTU. The supervisor takes on the primary responsibility of the fellow’s stay and provides guidance on scientific matters in his/hers discipline, including challenging the fellow’s academic work to inspire excellence in the research achievements, and counselling on career perspectives.

To help fellows build and strengthen their careers all fellows and supervisors are obliged to devise a personal Career Development Plan (CDP) for the fellow at the start of employment. The plan should be developed based on the fellow’s personal preferences and supervisor’s knowledge of the possibilities at DTU. Supervisor and fellow are obliged to meet twice a year to revise and further develop the plan.
