The students were informed by Susana Otazu and Sonia Mendoza, from the training department of AIN, of the opportunities for international mobility and internship in hosting companies from the countries of the project partners. The students were studying “Landscape and Rural Environment” (EQF 5) and “Forestry and Natural Environment Management” (EQF 5).
The internships will take place in ICT companies, agricultural companies or research centers and universities in three countries (Italy, Slovakia and Belgium) where trainees will have the chance of participating in different ongoing projects related to the digitalization of farms, research projects on digital farming, supporting research teams and in the analysis of needs and elaboration of a digital transformation strategic plans.
An internal tutor from each hosting company will be assigned to each trainee. This will allow trainees to put into practice their digital farming knowledge and skills in a work based learning (WBL) environment. The students were very interested in the opportunity and some of them expressed their desire of participating in the mobility.
