My stay at IrRADIARE will hardly be forgettable; I guess certain memories will always find a place in my heart. Stepping across the office door for the first time brought about feelings I will never forget: a young and cosy atmosphere that made me feel welcome and safe. I was lucky enough to share my time here with brilliant, friendly, kind colleagues and I was able to appreciate the diversity of each of them in terms of culture and background. On a working basis, I could follow the Euro-projecting process from the earliest stages up to witnessing ideas gradually come to life. I was able to deepen my knowledge on topics such as energy transition, digitalisation of cities, protection of biodiversity. Last but not least, being able to end the working day at the beach, facing the ocean at sunset is something that will hardly ever happen again. Final words go to Lisbon, which was the perfect setting for this experience: a city with a vibrant cultural scene, where you can witness so many concerts and events, and that made me feel at home from the very beginning. None of this can be described in words: come and try it for yourself!

Luca, Italy

I consider my 4 months experience in IrRADIARE as a valuable milestone in my life. Everyone made me feel like a part of the team from the very first moment. The environment of the company was amazing and everyone was really helpful.

If I look back, I feel so grateful for my time at IrRADIARE. During an only 3 months internship I have learned many things and I had different chances. When you leave your country to move abroad in order to work, maybe it seems daunting but from my experience people at IrRADIARE are so congeniality, working environment is really positive, efficient and healthy as well. As an intern I had the chance to work in different European Projects and I participated in interesting events and acts concerning different projects. I have enriched both my skills and abilities and going forward I will definitely need and exploit these new acquisitions. Last but not least, keep in mind that Lisbon is an amazing city and beyond a doubt it has my heart now. Thank you kindly IrRADIARE team!

Panagiota Savvidou, Greece

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. I have no doubts that I will use the skills that I have gained during my internship at IrRADIARE in my future career. Muito obrigrada e adeus Lisboa!

Tommasina, Italy

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. Being an intern at IrRADIARE is beneficial to all kinds of people. On the one hand, it enables EU beginners to get a valuable insight into the competences and opportunities of the EU. On the other hand, it allows EU affairs professionals-to-be to apply and extend their practical knowledge. 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!

Margherita, France

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.

Even if it is an internship you have the feeling to be part of an organization where everybody does its part and it is essential to reach the company goals.

The company gave me the opportunity to put my class room skills to the test in real world circumstances. Finally, I would like to thank my colleagues whose unique innovative spirit undoubtedly inspired me for my future professional steps after graduation.

Life changed suddenly for the whole world when COVID-19 arrived. But despite the difficult times, our dreams must continue, so I started my experience in Lisbon at IrRADIARE. I had the opportunity to work with an excellent team who always trusted me when it came to bring my design and communication skills to the projects.

I left this internship excited with everything that I learned and with a lot more confidence for my next professional experience.

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.

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.
