Students of the University of Innsbruck who are interested in a traineeship abroad in an Aurora Alliance partner county with a focus on sustainability, digitalisation or social impact in the period from January 2022 to August 2023, or who are already in the planning phase, can apply for a mobility grant during an open call.
The first, second and third call are expired. Currently no further calls are planned.
You can choose from the following countries for your traineeship:
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
The countries marked in orange are given preference in case of a large number of applications because they are members of the Aurora International Traineeship work package 3.1.2.
Requirements and conditions
As a prerequisite for your participation, your traineeship must be attributable to at least one of the following areas:
- AURORA Pilot Domains (Sustainability & Climate Change, Digital Society & Global Citizenship, Health & Well-being, Culture: Diversity & Identity)
- Social Entrepreneurship & Innovation
- Research and Service Learning
An Aurora traineeship has to last between 6 weeks and 6 months and it must be a full-time traineeship (at least 35h/week).
The scholarship rates are calculated based on the exact number of days spent abroad. Depending on the host country, you will receive a monthly rate of EUR 530 to EUR 630. Students who receive financial aid can get an additional top-up.
In the spirit of Green Mobility, you can choose to travel to the location of your traineeship in an ecofriendly way by train - except for stays in Iceland and, depending on your connection, in the United Kingdom and in Spain - and will then receive a one-time extra subsidy in the amount of EUR 50 for doing so.
Traineeships in institutions of the European Union are excluded, as is double funding via Erasmus+.
You can organise your traineeship yourself or use our network for assistance:
