From time to time the Institute offers traineeships to people wishing to gain some professional experience in an international environment. The traineeships are filled according to the Institute's needs and its decision on awarding these traineeships is final.

Traineeships may occur in the Library, in the ICT Service, at the Historical Archives of the European Union, in the Academic Service or in one of the central administration services, including the office of the EUI Legal Advisor and Data Protection Officer, or in the academic departments.

Conditions for eligibility

May be considered for a traineeship, candidates who:

Are nationals of a European Union member state, or of a candidate country which benefits from a pre-accession strategy (nationals of non-member states may be accepted depending on resources available) AND

A) Are studying for a first (post-secondary education) degree and are in the process of obtaining the qualification; OR

B) Are involved in a vocational training programme; OR

C) Have obtained the above (A or B) qualification, no longer than 18 months prior to the beginning of the traineeship.

Candidates must have a good knowledge of one of the EUI's official languages and a satisfactory knowledge of another language, taking into account that English, French and Italian are the main working languages at the Institute.

Type and duration

The type and duration of a traineeship shall be:

A) non-remunerated traineeship for a period up to a maximum of 3 months, OR

B) remunerated traineeship for a period of a minimum of 3 months (a trial period) and a maximum of 12 months

The trainee will receive a grant (€1,380 per month from January 2022). A remunerated trainee who is recruited from outside Florence is entitled to reimbursement of travel expenses actually incurred at the beginning and the end of the traineeship.

The trainee should be hired from the 1st of each month.

In both cases, health insurance is obligatory and can be obtained, upon request, through the Institute. Trainees are, by default, covered against the risk of accident by the collective policy that the Institute has taken out with Cigna Life Insurance Company NV/Cigna International Health Services BVBA (Policy Nr. 910.K88).
