Digital Opportunity Traineeships Pilot Project

The European Commission launched the Digital Opportunity Traineeships, a pilot project that will offer students of all disciplines on-the-job digital skills training in participating companies. 

The initiative, financed by Horizon 2020 and implemented through Erasmus+, will provide cross-border traineeships for up to 6,000 students and recent graduates over the period 2018 - 2020.
The traineeships will focus on enhancing digital skills in fields such as, big data analytics, data privacy, cybersecurity, IT systems and networks, development of apps and software, as well as digital marketing.

Interested students and recent graduates can apply through their university, according to the timing and mechanisms established by the university for Erasmus+ traineeships. 

The pilot project is open to all Erasmus+ Programme Countries and to the Horizon 2020 Associated Countries
