EULiST is a European University Alliance empowering responsible change agents by laying out career paths for students and recent graduates contributing to societal and technological developments. Inspired by the reciprocities and synergies between all disciplines, EULiST aims to a cultural and professional plurality across Europe, also through the context of internships.

The importance of internships has been greatly acknowledged across Europe as a means to acquire workplace-based experience and develop new competences and skills, highly valuable by employers. Four million individuals take part in at least one internship in Europe each year. Within this framework, EULIST will establish an internship matching platform, with a focus on climate action and social cohesion.

Along these lines, within Europe Day 2023, EULiST organizes an information event on Tuesday, May 9th, 2023 from 10:00 to 12:00 CET, with the title “EULiST and the European Union Careers Student Ambassadors on EU Internships”.

The event is addressed to students interested in internship opportunities, providing information on the diverse internship options available and exchanging experience with fellow students. The event will be held online via MS Teams and will also be livestreamed.

In particular, it will be further analyzed that an internship and a career at the EU public administration, recruited through the European Personnel Selection Office EPSO, is a unique opportunity for the EULiST students to work in an international team, offering personal and professional development, while acquiring new skills. URJC and NTUA European Union Careers Student Ambassadors and EPSO recruiters will present during the event the selection procedure, the qualifications required and the skills obtained.

Additional types of internships supported and promoted within EULiST Universities will also be presented, either on internships forming an optional or compulsory part of academic and vocational qualifications with a dominant focus on learning, or on internships with a main objective to help young people into employment.
