The European Space Agency offers many internship opportunities for the next year. Choose yours!


For more opportunities go to Europe


Organization: The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world. ESA is an international organisation with 22 Member States. By coordinating the financial and intellectual resources of its members, it can undertake programmes and activities far beyond the scope of any single European country. ESA’s job is to draw up the European space programme and carry it through. ESA's programmes are designed to find out more about Earth, its immediate space environment, our Solar System and the Universe, as well as to develop satellite-based technologies and services, and to promote European industries. ESA also works closely with space organisations outside Europe.

ESA's headquarters are in Paris which is where policies and programmes are decided. ESA also has sites in a number of European countries, each of which has different responsibilities:

-EAC, the European Astronauts Centre in Cologne, Germany;

-ESAC, the European Space Astronomy Centre, in Villanueva de la Canada, Madrid, Spain;

-ESOC, the European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany;

-ESRIN, the ESA centre for Earth Observation, in Frascati, near Rome, Italy;

-ESTEC, the European Space Research and Technology Centre, Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

-ECSAT, the European Centre for Space Applications and Telecommunications, Harwell, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom.

-ESA Redu Centre, Belgium.

ESAC, the European Space Astronomy Centre, is the ‘home’ of ESA’s space-telescope and planetary missions, the place from where science operations are conducted, and where all of the scientific data produced are archived and made accessible to the world. Telescopes in space are humankind’s eyes in the heavens: from their superior observing positions high above Earth’s atmosphere, they provide us with astounding views of the Universe at many different wavelengths. ESAC is where the instruments providing these views are operated and where these views become available for scientific study. Signals from black holes, from distant galaxies, from neighbouring planets and even from planets far beyond the Solar System are beamed back to the Madrid countryside.

ESAC has been chosen as the site for the Science Operations Centres (SOCs) of ESA Science missions for both astronomy and the Solar System. This means ESAC is rapidly evolving into a scientific hot-spot, a meeting point for top-level international space scientists working in different, but closely-related areas. The archives for all of ESA’s astronomy and Solar System missions are kept at ESAC so researchers have a single ‘entry point’ for accessing the wealth of scientific data.

ESAC is also involved in Earth Observation activities. ESAC hosts the Payload Operations and Data Processing Ground Segment of the ESA’s Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS), second Earth Explorer satellite.

ESAC offers 27 internship project for the 2018. You can find here all of them:

The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is the European Union's (EU) assembly of local and regional representatives that provides sub-national authorities (i.e. regions, counties, provinces, municipalities and cities) with a direct voice within the EU's institutional framework.

Established in 1994, the CoR was set up to address two main issues. First, about three quarters of EU legislation is implemented at local or regional level, so local and regional representatives needed to have a say in the development of new EU laws. Second, there were concerns about a widening gap between the public and the process of European integration; involving the elected level of government closest to the citizens was one way of closing the gap


Duty station: Brussels, Belgium

-to provide a unique, first-hand experience of the workings of the CoR in particular, and of the EU institutions in general

-to acquire practical experience and knowledge of the day-to-day work of the Committee's departments

-to work in a multicultural and multilingual environment

-to put into practice knowledge acquired during studies, particularly in your areas of competence


Requirements: To apply for a traineeship at the CoR, a number of basic requirements must be fulfilled.

Applicants must:

-be a national of one of the Member States of the European Union or of a State which is an official candidate for accession;

-have completed at least the first cycle of a higher education course and obtained a full degree by the closing date for applications

-have a thorough knowledge of one of the official languages of the European Union and a satisfactory knowledge of another EU-working language (French or English)
