The formula of the Eastern Partnership has barged into the European Investment Bank (EIB). From this day on, each graduate and last-year student of economics from an EaP country has a chance to enter an internship programme.
The European Investment Bank launched the Eastern Partnership Internship Programme (EPTATF) addressed specifically to the EaP countries – young economists and bankers from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. Every young last-year student or postgraduate of economics fluent in English or French has a chance to gain experience in the international environment, getting to know organizational culture of the EBI. The Programme includes travel costs, insurance, lodgings and scholarships lasting from 3 months to a year in Luxembourg, the EBI’s headquarters location.
The EBI is a financial institution founded in 1958 under the Treaty of Rome, an agreement that established the present European Union. The shareholders are 27 EU member states. Its main field is aiding small and medium enterprises. Granting credits and credit guarantees public and private entities from shareholding countries is to harmonize development of the Union. The institution, while operating mainly within the EU, is active in almost 150 countries.
