All companies in the industrial or service sector and architectural practices within the EU are eligible.
In particular, we welcome applications from eastern and Baltic countries.
The traineeship should be R&D oriented. (Special consideration will be given to companies prioritizing sustainability).
Through fulfilling the assigned tasks, the trainee should be given the chance to optimize and implement the specific knowledge he/she acquired at university.
Companies must be ready to integrate the trainee(s) into their team. (In fact, a major reason for Japanese students to apply is to gain an understanding of European approaches to team-working, decision-making and intercultural exchanges, which can be achieved through working within a team).
'Vulcanus in Europe' is, in principle, open to all EU27 member states.
However, visa and work permit – applicable rules depend on national legislation and may evolve.
The EU-Japan Centre will reconfirm the compatibility of Vulcanus in Europe in your country, through liaising with your national authority in September/October.
Based on our past experience, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that potential difficulties may only be notified to the EU-Japan Centre by then (October).
One of the selection criteria will be the compatibility of Vulcanus with the rules in force at the time of the selection.
