Curricular internship

Description and objectives

Curricular Internships are addressed to students enrolled in bachelor, master, and doctorate courses at Italian and foreign universities. Curricular Internships are carried out within the university curriculum, with the aim of enriching the student's theoretical knowledge through a real work experience.

Curricular Internships at CNR-ISMed may be centered around the involvement of students on existing research projects and/or the support in drafting the final dissertation. Students may be also involved in the Grant Office, namely on the elaboration of research proposals to be submitted to obtain funds allocated on a competitive basis.
