Testimonials on the Internship

I carried out the internship at LEITAT. As a scientist, I was really interested in doing the writing part and this is a technological center which really matched my interests. At LEITAT they work not only on the preparation of proposals (writing part) but also on the management of H2020 and other research and innovation national projects. So in my opinion it is a nice place to learn. I had a very nice tutor who gave the opportunity to participate in skype and also face to face meetings. I contributed in the writing of 3 proposals they were preparing in topics related to my background so very nice, even if I wrote relatively short parts I learned and enjoyed the internship a lot. I would have liked to work with them after the internship but there was no possibility. I got an opportunity to work in the management part in another consultancy instead and I think it is also nice to have an overview of the whole project life cycle. So if you are a scientist I think Leitat is the perfect place! I wish I could come back one day! If not, it is a nice place to learn anyway! Terrassa (Spain), September 2016
