Vulcanus in Europe: Host a Japanese trainee in R&D

The EU-Japan Centre is inviting applications from European Union companies and research centres to host Japanese trainees for a seven-month internship in the EU from late August 2021 until late March 2022 (six months in France from late September).

The trainees come from leading Japanese universities and are students in engineering or other scientific/high–tech fields. Following a four-month intensive language course, they will be able to communicate in the EU company’s local language.

By welcoming a trainee, the main benefits for the host company will be a valuable addition to its R&D workforce and an insight into Japanese culture, which is extremely useful for conducting successful business with Japan.

The application deadline is 15 October 2020. More information is available here.
