Testimonials on the Internship

Traineeship I had the opportunity to take part in a traineeship at Europe for Business (EFB) a company which focus on supporting Industrial and Research organisations in defining and implementing their innovation and research strategies, to solve societal problems. Even though the traineeship was a long distance one, it was a busy one. Gaining a "real world" perspective on the occupation of a project manager, in the field of European project, planning and management. During the three months traineeship, I developed practical skills on how to develop competitive proposals and create networks and partnerships. EFB is active in the field of dissemination, communication, training activities as well as, coordination and support actions. The traineeship mentor and his personal assistant, EFB project manager, were available at any given moment, during the traineeship. Regular contact through skype meetings and other types of communication medium were used. The internship was a valuable resource and a great learning experience. It has broadened my understanding of the European funding world in general and has given me a strong foundation and valuable experience for my future career.
