European Project on Virtual Internships
Third National Forum
Pixel organized the Third National Forum of the European project entitled VI4IS – Virtual Internships for Inclusive Societies, which took place last 5 July 2023 at Centro Machiavelli based in Florence (Italy). The project was funded by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus Youth Programme. The project was written and coordinated by Beogradska Otvorena Skola based in Belgrade (Serbia) and involves Pixel in the transnational partnership. The VI4IS improves access of young people (particularly those with fewer opportunities) to internship programs conducted within formal and non-formal education in Europe. The National Forum was divided into the following parts: introduction to the topic of the internships (onsite and online); presentation of the VI4IS project; intervention by an expert of online internships; round table aiming at defining pros and cons of virtual internships. 22 participants attended the forum. They were: experts in virtual internships, young students, representatives of associations, employers and employees.
