Digital Opportunity traineeships
The Digital Opportunity traineeship initiative provides cross-border higher education traineeships for students and recent graduates. It is financed by Horizon 2020 and implemented through Erasmus+, and the aim is to give students of all disciplines the opportunity to get hands on digital experience in fields demanded by the market.
Who can apply
- Students from universities in the Erasmus+ programme countries and Horizon 2020 associated countries;
- Recent graduates within 12 months after graduation can apply too, provided that they have applied before the graduation.
How to apply
Candidates apply through their university, according to the timing and procedures established by the university for Erasmus+ traineeships.
The trainees receive an average allowance of €500/month but the exact amount depends on the country, for 2-12 months, in line with Erasmus+ rules and procedures.
Companies are not involved in the transaction but they can top up this grant.
