SO-ICN2 Summer Fellowships Program
The SO-ICN2 Summer Fellowships Program aims to promote science and foster research careers in exceptionally talented young students.
Through this Program, ICN2 offers undergraduate students from top Universities worldwide the opportunity to carry out an internship at ICN2 during the European summer months. This summer stay will serve to broaden their education and research training, either through accomplishing part of their final career project or through joining an existing research project at ICN2.
The selected candidates will have the opportunity to actively participate in one of our frontier-research groups, and also learn about new and exciting areas of science, novel technologies and innovative ideas, all in a highly open and international environment.
The SO-ICN2 Summer Fellowship Program offered by ICN2 is part of the Severo Ochoa "Program on Nanodevices for Social Challenges" funded in 2014 by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness to support Research Centres of Excellence.
