Award Talents Internship

The FFG talent trainee, Larisa Manaj, from BG/BRG Schloss Wagrain in Vöcklabruck, completed a 4-week internship in summer 2019 as part of the Nan-O-Style project at the Faculty of Life Sciences. Her report was announced as one of the top 20 internship reports by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (the Österreichischen Forschungsförderungsgesellschaft (FFG)). The internship supervisor Martin Himly and team from the Department of Life Sciences extend their congratulations!

Die Österreichische Forschungsfoerderungsgesellschaft (FFG) fördert Praktika von jungen Talenten an wissenschaftlichen Einrichtungen. Das Team der Bio-Nano-Gruppe an der Universität Salzburt fokussiert dabei auf die Förderung von Mädchen in den MINT-Fächern, z.B. Kandidatinnen von AHS.

Talente-Praktika ermöglichen Jugendlichen ab 15 Jahren Praxiserfahrungen in Naturwissenschaft und Technik zu sammeln, die als Impulsgeber für die Studien- und Berufswahl dienen können. Forschende Unternehmen und Forschungseinrichtungen können junge Talente entdecken, fördern und bereits frühzeitig an ihre Organisation binden.

Forschende Unternehmen bzw. Forschungseinrichtungen können für hochwertige SchülerInnenpraktika im naturwissenschaftlich-technischen Bereich eine Förderung beantragen. Weitere Infos:  https://www.ffg.at/praktika
