Testimonials on the Internship

I carried out a three-month internship at Evolaris next level GmbH, a company with expertise in mobile communication and innovation based in Graz (Austria). I received support from the host organization in search for an accommodation and I found a room in a student dormitory closed to evolaris and to the center of the city. Graz is a small-medium nice city with beautiful architecture, interesting historic buildings, green parks and nearby forest, and fully options for cultural events and entertainment. I enjoyed my time at Evolaris, the tutor was very able to transfer information and fully willing to answer at my questions and provide clear explanations. I was integrated with the group from the beginning, my colleagues were helpful and friendly and I was actively involved in several activities and events organized by the company. With reference to the activities carried out, I gathered experience in research of relevant calls of proposals (national, interregional and EU), partner search and project management activities (attending meetings with partners, writing reports and supporting in achievement of project deliverables). I often attended conferences and seminaries in Graz and surroundings with my tutor. The tasks assigned was consistent with the classroom course and the experience was a valuable training to put into practice the knowledge acquired during the theoretical lessons. The experience as intern at Evolaris was an important step from a personal and professional point of view. I reinforced my motivation and my enthusiasm to work in the field of EU funding opportunities and I had the opportunity to launch my career and open my job perspectives. Moreover, I improved my interpersonal and communication skills and my knowledge of German language. After the internship, I continued to work at Evolaris as Assistant EU Project Manager for other two months. I´m fully satisfied with my choice and highly recommend Evolaris to those people who are motivated and interested in technological and innovation projects. Gratz (Austria), August 2017.
