VULCANUS IN EUROPE: BOOST YOUR R&D WITH A JAPANESE ENGINEERING STUDENT – AN IRISH SUCCESS STORY
Every year, the EU-Japan Centre offers companies and research centres the possibility to host Japanese trainees for an 8-month internship in the EU from August to March. The trainees come from leading Japanese universities and are students in biotechnology, pharmaceutical, chemistry, digital technologies, or other technical disciplines. Following a 4-month intensive language course, the trainees can communicate in the language requested by the company. By welcoming a trainee, the main benefits for the Host Company are a valuable addition to its R&D workforce and an insight into the Japanese culture, which is extremely useful for conducting successful business with Japan.
Costs: companies pay €825/month or the national minimum wage – whichever is higher.
The next call for host companies will be launched in spring.
The current session of the internship programme is coming to an end, and this is how Ireland’s leading Automated Voice and Business SMS software provider, Phonovation , reflects on their experience with Vulcanus in Europe:
“Phonovation has greatly benefited from the Vulcanus programme. Satoshi added value to the organisation from the moment he joined. His expertise in Machine Learning was invaluable to a key innovative project the company was researching and developing – we progressed in three months what we thought would take six thanks to Satoshi. With regular presentations to the entire company, Satoshi has spread his knowledge about Machine Learning and has educated many of us on a sophisticated topic.
Added to his Engineering experience and knowledge, getting fresh and unique perspectives from talented individuals is always welcome. It has also been an absolute pleasure to work alongside Satoshi.”
