Testimonials on the Internship

My internship was held at the international department of Florida University in Valencia, Spain. I was very well received, supported and guided by my tutor, Laura Uixera, and by the whole team of this department. It was a great professional experience, both personal and human. I learned a lot from the work I did and the people I worked with. I have been involved in different projects of different areas and programs, most of all Erasmus + but also Horizon 2020. In this internship I had the opportunity to apply and develop the knowledge acquired in the theoretical part in Florence and to learn about more practical aspects, from cooperating in the elaboration of new projects for submission to the management of ongoing projects and logistical issues for some international meetings. When the internship was over I was hired by Florida Universitària for a few more months, having been a privilege for me and the recognition of my dedication and the acquired and developed learning. Also the gratification of continuing to work with this excellent team and being involved in new projects. It was an experience that exceeded my expectations and contributed me a lot in professional and personal terms. Thank you very much! Valencia (Spain), September 2017
