Since 2015 EU4EU – European Universities for the EU program facilitates the transition between university education and access to employment, through professional Erasmus + internships with focus on EU-funded projects at companies based in the EU. EU4EU program generated a network of National Consortia of Universities built to respond to similar employment needs of young graduates in different EU countries. National Consortia are currently active in Italy, Spain, Croatia, and France.
Within this framework, each EU4EU National Consortia organizes highly qualified internship experiences from 2 to 6 months, fostering trainees’ professional skills, strengthening their linguistic and computer abilities and refining the communication talents of participants in international environments. The project aims to maximize the employment impact: it favours traineeships that offers greater guarantees of continuity, promotes the development of skills that enrich trainees’ curricular profile and can be easily used in other professional sectors (i.e. project management, project design, digital skills, web design, graphic design, digital marketing and social communication).
EuGen – European Generation, founder and international coordinator of EU4EU, directs the management of different National Consortia and supports the implementation of the activities in a coherent way. This cooperation enhances the efficiency of the management procedures: it allows the sharing of best practices, the use of innovative management software and a wide database of qualified Host Organizations. The collaboration among different National Consortia is a recommendation of the Erasmus + program.
The EU4EU program also generated an international Community that connects Universities, companies, students and young professionals all over Europe. This community encourages the creation of partnerships, the development of European projects and transnational initiatives, boosting the growth of its members on the international scene.
