I always wanted to do something meaningful and positively remarkable for society and the environment. I had this chance during my internship at IrRadiare despite the fact that it was a remote internship. During my experience, I faced tasks and challenges in the field of European projects (green hydrogen energy, smart cities, Europe digitalising etc.), sustainability and overcame them also thanks to the support of the great team. I learned a lot of things and became familiar with Europe developing vector. An internship has made me more confident and even more passionate about Sustainable & International Development. It was a great journey of continuous learning and developing.

Elena, 23, Saint Petersburg

After two months of my return home, I am still thinking about experience in Portugal, from the beginning to the end. Unfortunately, I had to leave sooner, because of the Covid-19. Even though my internship was the most interesting and adventurous experience in my life. Not only the working time in the office but every second, which I could spend with people and knowing Portuguese culture, Lisbon, and surrounding areas. It was the first time I lived alone without my family and friends. I can say it was the best decision to go despite it was not so easy. During my experience, I learned many new things, overcame myself, and I met a lot of friendly people who were very kind and helpful. This journey made me stronger, more self-confident and it learnt me to enjoy the present time. I really miss the peaceful life which was everywhere around me. Many times I had felt like in a dream. For sure, this experience will be in my heart forever. To the end, little advice for the next trainees – the 25th of February is the day off. Don't come to the office!

Barbora, 24, Slovakia

Thanks to IrRADIARE I was able to learn a lot about European environmental projects. Even though my internship was interrupted by Covid-19, the company was amazing! We worked from home, but the connection, helpfulness, and professionalism of coworkers was priceless!

Monika, 22, Slovakia

IrRADIARE was not only a workplace where I expanded my knowledge but also a safe place to feel calm and focused on my work. I think I have absorbed a lot of knowledge from this experience: in addition to the study path itself (programming applied to data analysis with pycharm and TensorFlow), I lived for the first time alone without my family, and this experience has broadened my horizons both personally and culturally. I was part of a fantastic team, Flávia and Elsa were very kind, and during my stay at IrRADIARE, I met many people of my age, including some Italians guys. I felt involved and passionate about the hydrogen project, and although it didn't last long it certainly impressed me. I hope to be able to return and work to IrRADIARE in the future, perhaps by visiting their Brussels office next time.

Inês, 20, Portugal

I applied because I was looking for a formative experience in the field of European project planning for sustainability and development, and IrRADIARE was among the best options I found. Second, the possibility of doing the internship abroad, in a country that is developing and performing well, like Portugal, and in a multi-cultural environment, definitely convinced me to accept this challenge.

I found IrRADIARE in an internship website after searching for many months. When I read the job description I found the opportunity interesting for me to both visit Portugal and work with environmental engineering.

Irem, 21, Turkey

In this company, I was warmly welcomed and the people who work here are very helpful and kind.

The projects which I'm working on are connected with the degree that I’m taking - Environmental Engineering - and also we are learning practical ways to save the environment.

Before coming here I wasn't sure if was a good idea to go alone to a new country without knowing anyone, but now I think that it was the best decision ever.

Patryk, 23, Poland

IrRADIARE is Innovation, Sustainability and Challenge.

Alina, 31, Italy

With IrRADIARE I got a new perspective of the environment and started thinking about sustainable economy. At the university, they taught us that the main goal is to GDP growth and maximize profits in companies. But in today's environmental crisis, nature and sustainability need to be taken into account.

Mária, 24, Slovakia

I choose IrRADIARE, because after my graduation I wanted to find a first real job in the area which I was studying, which means International Relations and the European Union. I was also impressed by the references about this company, which were given to me by my friend, who previously worked here. IrRADIARE represents a perfect combination of what I was looking for: professional experience, development of my skills and also location in the beautiful country of Portugal.

Martina, 24, Slovakia

My friend recommended me this internship and provided contact information. I liked the experience of my friend, so I sent my CV to IrRADIARE via email and successfully got in.

Stanislava, 24, Slovakia

The most funny thing that happened to me was in the first days as intern in IrRADIARE. I was working in the office when suddenly I felt that something under the table was licking my leg. Then I looked under the desk and I met the mascot of our company - Sebastião. I was shocked because I have never seen a dog in an office, but now I know that IrRADIARE is a dog-friendly company.

Lukas, 24, Slovakia

My main goal when I applied to IrRADIARE was to gain international experience while improving both my English and my Portuguese in a context of multiculturality, interdisciplinarity and sustainability.
