Traineeships at the EESC - European Economic and Social Committee

Twice a year the European Economic and Social Committee offers traineeships for a period of five months to university graduates who are nationals of the Member States of the European Union, as well as to a number of university graduates from non-EU countries.

These periods of in-service training offer an opportunity to learn about the EESC's roles and activities and to acquire professional experience in a multicultural environment. They begin on 16 February and 16 September of each year and take place in the Committee's offices in Brussels. 

Long term trainees are given a monthly grant in accordance with the provisions regarding traineeships at the EESC (Decision 201/16 A). For long term traineeships taking place within the time period 16/02/2018 – 15/02/2019 the amount of the grant is a lump sum of 1.176,84 EUR per month. The amount will remain unchanged until the end of the 2018 Autumn session (15/02/2019).
