Ya han sido elegidos los «Vulcanus» del año que viene, por ahora tengo noticia de tres españoles que han tenido la «suerte» de pasar la fase final de la selección. Uno de ellos es Fernando Martín que ya tiene blog y trabajará en NTT el año que viene.
The «Vulcanus in Japan» company internship programme for European science and engineering students has entered its eighth year since its launch in 1997. During these eight years, the programme has hosted 134 European science and engineering students, including the 24 students who went to Japan in September last year. Having completed the four-month intensive Japanese language course, these students commenced research and development work at the research laboratories of 16 Japanese host companies in January this year. Demand for professionals with international awareness is fast rising as economies and societies interact and become borderless. One of the aims of this programme is to support training for young professionals who can effectively become «bridges» for the development of economic cooperation between Japan and Europe, now and in the future. The eight-month traineeship in Japanese companies enables students to expand their knowledge and skills in their own area of specialisation, while also acquiring more general knowledge about Japanese business practices, interpersonal communication, and culture.
