Moreover, the interns will give their contribution in the activities related to the European projects we are currently part of, as far as communication and dissemination are concerned. Our EU projects deal with different areas of interest, ranging from genetics in agriculture, materials in the medical environment, to digital technologies and circular economy. Therefore, we are looking for people that are interested in some of the abovementioned areas.

  • room for personal responsibility, creativity, and personal development
  • in-house mentoring
  • attendance to several events in Brussels
