04 Apr University of Belgrade as a member of The Pan-European Seal Programme – Great Opportunity for Paid Student Internship
Center for Technology Transfer initiative on engagement of the University of Belgrade in the Pan-European Seal Professional Traineeship Programme was successfully finished, since the University became the member of the Programme. This way, high-achieving young graduates of the University of Belgrade are offered the opportunity to gain over one year paid internship, valuable on-the-job professional work experience in the multicultural environments of the EUIPO and EPO.
The purpose of the Pan-European Seal programme is to spot IP talent early in Europe’s brightest and highest-achieving graduates. Targeting young, aspiring IP professionals, it offers them year-long paid traineeship posts sponsored by the EPO and the EUIPO. Trainees also receive on-the-job coaching from staff, and have access to online training and, if applicable, language courses.
At the end of each Pan-European Seal programme, a ceremony is held at each Office to award the 10 best trainees with a merit diploma, while the rest receive attendance diplomas.
Thanks to this membership, University of Belgrade is entitled to submit, by no later than 30 April each year, a shortlist of 10 deserving candidates – five for the EPO and five for the EUIPO – selected according to the University of Belgrade’s individual criteria. Training takes place at the EPO or at the EUIPO, and trainees are paid a monthly training allowance, as well as other benefits. Candidates can only be accepted if proposed by the University of Belgrade.
