Leonardo Da Vinci
Leonardo aims to provide opportunities for students willing to enter the work environment, through the allocation of study grants to cover business internships abroad. The stay usually lasts for several months (to be decided on a case by case basis).
The following can participate in this programme:
- students enrolled in the penultimate year(minimum) of their degree, up to age 28 (inclusive), and those engaged in any working activity, or enrolled in a postgraduate course.
- graduates who are 28, but who have not yet started working.
The Leonardo grant lasts between 12 and 36 weeks. It provides a grant of up 120 to 200 euro per week and also includes a refund of travel expenses. The destinations available are specified within the bulletin published annually.
To participate in the selection for the study grants, newly graduated and current students must present a work proposal, attached to their application form, in which the grant holder describes the contents of the internship that he/she would like to carry out. The proposal also should specify the details of the project.
The industry provides the grant holder with a tutor who facilitates his/her insertion in the business and an adequate professional development.

European Researcher's Mobility portal
The European Commission launched on 10 July 2003 a new web portal to create a more favourable environment for the career development of researchers in the European Research Area, by providing them with the necessary structured information.
The new European Researcher's Mobility portal provides links to hundreds of research organisations offering grants, fellowships, training opportunities and job openings across Europe and internationally. It also allows researchers to post their CVs and research organisations to publish their vacancies - all free of charge.
The portal aims to become a one-stop shop for researchers seeking to advance their careers and personal development by moving to other countries. In addition to the information on training and jobs it provides, the portal contains a wealth of practical information on living, working and relaxing in the 33 European countries involved.
The European Researcher's Mobility portal is a unique web resource because it overcomes a recognised obstacle in the cross-border mobility of researchers: a lack of information on available opportunities. By making the research opportunities in Europe more visible, the European Commission hopes that the portal will help enhance the attractiveness of the EU for research talent from all over the world.
The portal comes in the wider context of the Commission's human resources measures aimed at removing obstacles to mobility and helphing Europe develop its brainpower.
