Write your motivation and competences in beforehand;
Check the document "departments" in order to find out which unit you would like to work for.

Candidates who wish to write the name of their diploma in Cyrillic or Greek alphabet should change the "tabset" at the desktop in order to do so.
Documents will only be requested in case your application has the status "pre-selected".
Documents or applications sent via post or mail, etc. are disregarded.
The application form can only be submitted after you have filled in all tabs. After submitting the application form, you will receive an e-mail with an identification number. This number will enable you to re-enter the application form and make necessary changes before the deadline of the application period.
The Traineeships Office advises to apply well ahead of the deadline. Due to the very high number of applications, the system may encounter problems processing the large amounts of data when reaching the deadline for submitting the applications. But also, the CoR's informatics department may have more time to have a closer look at your specific question.
Be honest. Do not forget that the Traineeships Office requests proof of what you have declared in your application form. When it becomes apparent that you knowingly made a wrongful declaration or provided false statements or papers at the moment of application or at any time during the traineeship period, your application will be cancelled.
