The European Union “Jean Monnet” Chair is offering an innovative program combining an internship training and individualized research supervision. Available to all undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Miami, it is sponsored by a grant awarded by the European Union. A certificate of expertise will be issued. This experience is highly valued when applying for internships at the EU sites or other private and government employment.
