My internship at IrRADIARE, in Lisbon, was truly an inspiring and positive experience. During my time there, I was given the opportunity to engage in a wide range of challenging and diverse tasks, which allowed me to gain invaluable experience in various aspects of the company's operations. From conducting sustainability standards research to assisting in project development, I was able to assume significant responsibilities that pushed me to grow both personally and professionally. My favourite task was drafting an entire report for an inspiring and creative European project proposal: I got to see how a European project is entirely developed and submitted.
The working environment at IrRADIARE was welcoming, the people I collaborated with were not only knowledgeable and experienced but also incredibly helpful, kind and always willing to provide valuable advice. Additionally, living in Portugal turned out to be even more surprising and emotionally fulfilling than I had anticipated.

We worked on joint project proposals to share the experience and expertise of IrRadiare in other regions, especially in Ukraine to tackle the issues with Black Sea pollution. After returning back to Poland we continued our cooperation and I hope we will work together in the future on the creation of projects across different areas and countries.

Looking back at my time at IrRADIARE, I can say that I am extremely grateful for the things that I have learned during my 5-month-long internship. Leaving your country and putting yourself out there can seem intimidating sometimes, but luckily, everyone I met at IrRADIARE was very helpful, and the work atmosphere was always positive. It’s the little things, like getting flowers on International Women’s Day from colleagues or the morning coffee conversations with the many other interns, that made IrRADIARE a safe space for me. During my time at IrRADIARE I have worked on interesting projects, such as the development of sustainable initiatives for a municipality or research on the concept of green nudges in energy communities.

As a Master student of European Affairs, I have to admit I have learnt more about this subject during my 3-month internship at IrRADIARE than in my first academic year.

IrRADIARE offers much more to its interns: a welcoming team of colleagues, the possibility to take on responsibility and the experience of taking initiative and leadership. Empowering!

My internship was based on a research topic concerning the use of a geographic information system software coupled with environmental indicators. The subject was transverse but also complementary to my university training which is geology. I learned a lot about the management and distribution of energy at the Portuguese and European levels. I developed technical skills on the QGIS software which will be essential for my future career as this type of software is used in many companies and research departments in my field of activity. I wasn’t lucky enough to be able to work on the company's site because of the health situation, but the people I was able to talk to and work with were always available and benevolent to me. Company meetings were organized every week to keep in touch with each other.

Lucca, 21, Portugal

When i first applied for this internship i was scared i would not fit the job, because it was the first time on the job market and doing something that was not related to my area of study. The global situation wasn’t ideal too, however since day one i felt like a part of the team. Everyone was always ready to help us, to guide us when we needed guidance and that made me feel secure and excited about all the tasks. Even though it was a remote internship the connection with all the Team was so incredible! Every Friday we joint on a Online Call and just talked about everything (but work), did a lot of games to know each other and this made these 3 months feel like a week. I left this internship with new ambitions, new learnings, but with a heavy heart for leaving these persons i truly feel inspirated about. I have no words to thank all IrRADIARE members, because they did this awful pandemic situation feel a lot more lighter. This internship made me improve a lot of skills and discover new ones i didn't knew i had. I hope you enjoy this experience as much as i did.

Rita, 20, Portugal

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.

Michela, 22, Italy

I found IrRADIARE in my university webpage and I think it's a good opportunity to gain international experience and improve languages.

Noemi, 22, Spain

Thanks to this experience I improved my design and communication skills, as well as I developed myself in the context of European projects and sustainability. Also, I could work and spend time with people from different countries, which allowed me to enhance my English skills. At the same time, I discovered the beautiful city of Lisbon and its surroundings.

María, 22, Spain

I applied for this internship program because I wanted to gain more knowledge and experience in the field of urban policies and territorial planning. Here I was lucky to find a great team of talented interns and we created so many beautiful memories together.

Diana, 27, Romania

Three months in which I went through what is being done in the European Union about sustainability and climate change and also what Portugal does about that in its municipalities. A good opportunity to learn, meet nice interns and discover Lisbon.

Diego, 24, Spain

It has been an amazing experience both personal and professional. On the one hand, I could develop my design skills, time management and learnt about how European projects work. On the other hand, I could improve my English and learnt a little bit of Portuguese. Besides, I’ve loved being able to work with many other interns from different countries and backgrounds.

Marta, 22, Spain

I spent three very enjoyable months. It was my first step in professional life and I am very happy about this experience. I would like to thank all interns, colleagues and Sebastião.

Ezgi, 22, Turkey

In IrRADIARE we are many students in training so it creates an atmosphere that makes you feel at home.

Lisbon is an amazing city with a lot of culture and it has been incredible living here. Also being at IrRADIARE with the rest of the interns from other countries and being in such a nice environment was a lovely experience.

Ana, 22, Spain

After my graduation I accepted the challenge at IrRADIARE because I wanted to have a formative job experience in the field of Sustainable Development, Smart Cities and European project. I really enjoyed the friendly, quiet, kind, comfortable and multicultural atmosphere of the work office. Thanks to this internship I met lots of new friends, I developed my designing and personal management skills, I improved my English skills, I learned a bit of Portuguese and, finally, I had the chance to stay in the gorgeous city of Lisbon and to explore the Portuguese culture and other beautiful towns of this Country.

Ilenia, 26, Italy

IrRADIARE has exceeded my expectations: not only I have worked on the field of sustainability and development, but I have also found life-long friends and an amazing team. Here I felt at home, even if my real home is far away from Lisbon.

Fulvia Iannotta, 22, Italy

My goal in IrRADIARE was to learn how national and european environmental projects work. Also I wanted to learn and improve my portuguese until I could be an advanced portuguese speaker.

Aura, 25, Spain

My experience in IrRADIARE has been really good, I’ve been learning a lot of stuff about graphic design and content development for social networks. The office is super calm and friendly. We feel like home here!

Mónica Silva, 20, Portugal

Until now my experience in IrRADIARE has been positive, I’ve learned different ways to improve my designing skills. The company's work space is very relaxed and friendly, everyone gets along and help each other.

Débora Barros, 20, Portugal

I applied through a government program for a summer internship. So far I've learned a lot about communication network, digital content and social media management. This experience has made a huge impact in my resume!

Rebeca, 20, Portugal

In IrRADIARE I learned a lot of things about programming, electronics and networks. With this experience I accomplished other things like working in an office that is so calm and friendly and also making friends from other countries.

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.

Pier Paolo, 24, Italy

“Inclusion” is the first word which bumps into my mind. No matter how old you are or where you're from, you will always feel part of this team from the very first day. IrRADIARE is a 100% proactive company and is a stimulating work place. Surely memorable!

Michela, 24, Italy

I met IrRADIARE because of the Erasmus European Program. When I applied I had an interview via skype and without nothing I was in Portugal!

Manuel, 24, Spain

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.

Emílio, 23, Spain

I choose IrRADIARE because it’s a company that takes care of sustainability and European projects. They are known for receive a lot of European students and so it was the perfect occasion to explore this topics in a good environment.

Chiara, 23, Italy

In Slovak I met a girl that did her internship in IrRADIARE. We had a talk and she told me about the company which she recommended to me. I didn´t hesitate and wrote an email to Elsa Nunes. The hiring process was smooth and I am glad that now I can do my internship here.
