Testimonials on the Internship

I attended my internship at INNOLABS Srl a company based in Livorno, which has been raised from a spin-off of the Political Science Department of the University of Pisa. INNOLABS is mainly active in the Tourism, Environment and International Cooperation fields and it is specialized in the R&I and R&D sectors. The organization has been involved in several FP7 projects as well as in the Italia Francia Marittimo Programme, while now is focusing its efforts on the first and third pillars of H2020. INNOLABS work environment is at the same time highly professional as well as informal and friendly. In fact as long as it is a small company, the direct face-to-face daily dialogue with the tutor and the other members of the team is a guarantee of directed and systematic learning experience. INNOLABS ensures a valuable multicultural experience due to their regular collaboration with its international partners. Since the beginning of the internship experience, I have been fully integrated in the work team and I was treated as a valuable group member. Nicola, my tutor, and all the colleagues have been always extremely willing to help, accessible and cheerful. Under the attentive and warmth guidance of Nicola, I have been directly involved in the writing activities dedicated to the April 2014 tranche of H2020 deadlines. Moreover, I’ve carried out tasks such as background researchers, financial studies, production of questionnaires, communication and coordination activities among projects’ partners. The experience at INNOLABS has been tremendously educational both from the professional and human standpoints. I have been constantly stimulated, supported and encouraged to overcome my limits and fears and I am grateful for this. Pisa (Italy), June 2014

I did my internship in Pisa, at Innolabs Srl. It was a positive experience for the personal relationships established with the colleagues and it was a good support for me that a previous participant from the 2nd edition was also working here after her internship, because they were more prepared and already knew what to expect. In summary, it is a small company with a good working environment. Innolabs works mainly in Horizon 2020, both in project proposals writing and managing the partnerships, but also in the implementation stage of projects with the preparation of some deliverables in the water sector.
