What made you happy about your internship?


I liked that right at the beginning I was given a project which I could develop by myself (a case study), and that I could experience work on the case studies as well as tender writing. I was also very happy about the fact that I got the chance to work with several people as it contribute do my skills of working in a group and collaborating.

Suggestions for future interns


You may get tasks that seem random, but throughout your internship you will experience a broad range of a researcher’s tasks and work on different projects, including the process of proposal writing. After the internship you will have a good understanding of what a job like this entails.
