Back in 2019, the Innovation team of EuMA launched an internship award for Master and Ph.D. students who would like to work in the microwave field across European Institutions. As of today, sixteen leading European Microwave & RF Industries, Universities, and Research Institutes are ready to provide supervision for young researchers looking to get more value to their Ph.D. or master thesis. 

23 students from UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Ukraine, Poland, Spain, China, Sweden, India, Egypt, Germany, Portugal, and Italy have already benefited from this program. Do you want to know what experience they received and how an internship award affected their career? These interviews can help you with that:
