The focus of the program is on intersectoral mobility and will provide reimbursements to the researchers for internships in industrial and public organisations.

Expected Impact

The team expects that between 25 – 35 researchers will benefit from this program.

Financial Support

The ERA Talent project financial resource devoted to the EURAXESS Internship Program is 200 000 EUR. The reimbursement of the researcher covers duration of each internship activity between min 1 to max 6 months with full time or part time engagement with the host organisation.
