Organization/Company: EFSA is a European agency funded by the European Union that operates independently of the European legislative and executive institutions (Commission, Council, Parliament) and EU Member States.

It was set up in 2002 following a series of food crises in the late 1990s to be a source of scientific advice and communication on risks associated with the food chain. The agency was legally established by the EU under the General Food Law - Regulation 178/2002.

The General Food Law created a European food safety system in which responsibility for risk assessment (science) and for risk management (policy) are kept separate. EFSA is responsible for the former area, and also has a duty to communicate its scientific findings to the public.

MOOCs - Massive Open Online Courses - are free online courses taught by university professors that allow students to get informed through videos and quizzes on current topics. Most courses are in English.



Fort similar opportunity go to Education

 

Organization: These courses are currently offered by the European Committee of the Regions (CoR),  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. Within the European Union local and regional authorities have lobbied for an increased say in EU affairs. This resulted in the creation by the Maastricht Treaty of the European Committee of the Regions, and provision for member states to be represented in the Council of the EU by ministers from their regional governments.



When: The period of the courses runs from the 15/01/2018 till 14/01/2019 (You can also take part only to the courses and lessons chosen)

 

Where: online here

 

Opportunity Description: The CoR is the first EU body that developed and delivered two MOOCs on "Europe's regions, the EU institutions and policy-making" (2015) and "The EU budget and funding for regions and cities" (2016), which reached more than 15,000 participants worldwide. Building on this successful experience, the CoR is launching a third MOOC focusing on "How to make the most of EU resources for regions and cities". The MOOC will provide relevant information on present and future EU policies and programmes, as well as practical tools and examples of available funding opportunities at regional and local level.

The course will be available on Iversity, an online learning platform, and will include videos, factsheets, infographics and web-streamed live debates with Q&A from the course participants. Moreover, course followers will be able to interact via their learning journals in the course platform. During the first six weeks of the course (15 January-23 February 2018), followers will focus on one specific theme per week and will evaluate their learning progress via assignments and a weekly quiz. Studying time will be about 1.5 hours per week. The course material will remain online for one year, so that after the first six weeks learners can work through the course material in their own pace. The course is co-created with several Directorates-General of the European Commission – Regional and Urban Policy; Budget; Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion; Agriculture and Rural development; Eurostat – as well as the European Investment Bank, Interreg Europe and URBACT. The course is free of charge, open to anyone interested in EU and regional and local affairs, and accessible on all devices.



Qualifications: This course is for everybody interested in the EU and its regional and local affairs, particularly for officials of regional and local administrations involved in EU affairs. It also targets students, teachers, local journalists and citizens in general. The only requirement is to have a good knowledge of English and of the European Union

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:
