More than 60 students from 10 Higher Education Institutes (9 of them from RIS countries) and 13 representatives from 12 host organizations participated in the event.

What was presented

Professor Katerina Adam and Mrs. Irene Christodoulou from the NTUA project team presented, in proper detail, the RIS- Internship project opportunities for students and Host organizations, while Mrs. Kristina Koret, member of the Project Administration team, provided valuable insights regarding the application process and the matchmaking platform.

At the next Session, four (4) students that performed their internship in 2023 talked about their experience and provided inspiration and motivation while two of them highlighted the fact that were employed by the Host organization after the successful implementation of their internship.

After that, the representatives of the Host organizations gave a brief description of their company as well as of the number and context of the RIS-Internship positions offered for year 2024.

During the Breakout Sessions, students had the opportunity to interact with the Host organizations representatives and ask for more information on the positions offered.

The event closed with a short Q&A session. It was a common perception that the RIS-Internship Project is empowering students to explore the possibilities of interning in Europe and enables them to start building their future in the Raw Materials Sector.
