GET_INvolved Programme with Poland and Romania established
Four universities in Poland and Romania now agreed to become GET_INvolved partners by listing GSI/FAIR as receiving organization for the Erasmus+ scholarship programme. Students and graduates from these universities may now apply for Erasmus+ scholarships using a simplified procedure to enable them an internship, traineeship or research stay at GSI and FAIR in Darmstadt, Germany.
Erasmus+ is the European Union's programme to foster education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Erasmus+ supports, for example, traineeships and internships abroad for students currently enrolled in higher education institutions in programme countries at Bachelor and Master level as well as for doctoral candidates. These opportunities are also open to recent graduates.
The GET_INvolved programme provides international students and early stage researchers with opportunities to perform internships, traineeships and early-stage research experience in order to get involved in the international FAIR acclerator project while receiving scientific and technical training.
So far, three Polish universities and one Romanian university agreed to become GET_INvolved partners and to list GSI/FAIR as receiving organization for their students: in Poland the Warsaw University of Technology (WUT), the Wrocław University of Science and Technology (WUST) and the Białystok University of Technology (BUT), in Romania the University of Bucharest.
