Researcher network

The EMCC, with the overall vision of being the ‘go to body’ for mentoring and coaching – since its foundation has considered research to be a main pillar of its activities. We aim to explore, enable and share research in order to support the professionalisation of coaching, mentoring, and supervision.

Our next step is for EMCC to further strengthen its ties with the academic world, by creating a network of academics and researchers who would like to contribute to the developments of coaching, mentoring, and supervision. This is an invitation for you to join us, and make an impact on the world of coaching, mentoring, and supervision through science and research!

Who is it for?

  • The researcher network is open for those who are either:
  • Working in the academic field formally, dealing with the topics of coaching, mentoring, or supervision – or on closely related topics
  • PhD students with a strong commitment towards research of the areas above
  • Practitioners who use research methodologies in their current practices, or who regularly work with measurements, run custom diagnostic or research projects with their clients.

What does it mean to join – commitments

You make your own commitments. If you’d just like to be informed of what is happening in EMCC, and receive invitations to join potential studies that is fine. If you wish to participate in EMCC projects – we are a volunteer organisation run by enthusiasts like you – then you can immediately get in touch with us. We’ll invite you to share your preferences with us.

EMCC International Research will reach out to members of the researcher network if:

  • An EMCC projects needs research support, volunteers or potentially paid contributors with a specific knowledge or background
  • A partner of EMCC asks for research support, and/or specific academic knowledge
  • There is a specific opportunity to present, share and discuss certain topics – e.g. our research conferences.  The opinion of the academic community is needed on a certain issue of overall importance.
