ERASMUS INTERN

ERASMUS INTERN | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

ErasmusIntern.org provides an integrated market place that aims at bringing together internship providers and students seeking an internship opportunity abroad.  

 

ErasmusIntern.org is part of STORY project which is a project by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN). ESN is a non-profit international student organisation which mission is to represent international students by providing opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students. ESN has more than 13.000 members in local sections all over Europe working on a volunteer base together with Higher Education Institutions and offering services to 180.000 students per year

 

The STORY project has been funded with support of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission. This project aims at improving the accessibility and quality of international internships, as well as at increasing the awareness on the existence of such opportunities for youth. In order to achieve this, a research on the subject was committed, and this online platform is being developed in order to enhance students’ international opportunities on the European job market.

 

ErasmusIntern.org provides a place where companies and organisations can publish their internship offers and search for interns, and where students that want to do an internship abroad can have their profiles, search and apply for internships vacancies.

John Bostock's insight:

Lets hope that with greater critical mass this project will really help with providing students with relevant professional experience

Novus International, Inc. is pleased to announce the sponsorship of the Novus World Aquaculture Society (WAS) Internship program. Aquaculture has a bright future, as it represents the fastest growing animal production industry. Novus recognises the need for the industry to attract and educate talented individuals to become future aqua research scientists and nutritionists. This internship program represents an investment by Novus into the future of the aquaculture industry. All eligible candidates are encouraged to apply!

• Choose a model disease and suggest an experiment aimed at testing a novel possible preventive or treatment solution.
• Provide background literature review on the pathogen, pathogenesis, epidemiology and/or host pathogen interactions etc. as appropriate to support experimental designs and hypotheses.
