What is the INL Summer Internship Programme?

Each year, the INL Summer Internship Programme offers undergraduate students from the fields of Nanotechnology, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering (Electrical, Biological, Biomedical, Mechanical) or related areas, an unique opportunity to participate in ongoing research activities 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 engaging them in cutting-edge state-of-the-art research and development activities.

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

Over the last four years, INL received over 130 undergraduate students from different nationalities and scientific backgrounds.

In 2018, the INL Summer Internship Programme will be holding its 5th edition and will select 25 students with outstanding academic performance to be part of this summer experience.
