What is the INL Summer Internship Programme?

Each year, the INL Summer Internship Programme offers undergraduate students of biology, chemistry, physics, engineering (electrical, biological, biomedical, mechanical) or related areas a unique opportunity to take part in ongoing research projects during the summer at INL in Braga, North of Portugal.

The goal of this programme is to inspire students to consider a prospective career in Nanotechnology, by immersing them in cutting-edge research opportunities.

The combination of our multicultural and multidisciplinary environment will allow students to explore challenging ideas and will greatly benefit their academic and professional development.

In 2017, the Summer Internship Programme will be holding its 4th edition. Over the last four years, more than 100 undergraduate students from different countries and of different nationalities have  joined INL for the summer programme.

This experience was rewarding and fulfilling for me. I had the opportunity to work with friendly and helpful people, especially my supervisors and colleagues. For this reason I want to thank INL for this opportunity and everyone who worked with me.
