My name is Francesco Savigni and I am an Italian student in Science and Food Technology attending the post graduate Master’s course (second cycle degree programme) at Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna. I received my Bachelor’s degree (first cycle degree programme) in Food Technology (3-year degree) in December 2017.
With the Erasmus+ Mobility project, we are given the opportunity to apply for a funded traineeship of 2 - 3 months in a foreign company, which is a valid opportunity for students to acquire specific skills and learn about other countries’ culture and language. The foreign company can also profit from this experience as trainees can share their expertise and notions acquired during their course of study, without mandatory costs for the company.
Personally, I find this opportunity amazing as I am enthusiast to test myself in my field of expertise and I am willing to learn from people more experienced than me. In particular I would like to operate in sectors regarding product research and innovation, quality assurance, food manufacturing and process management.
Furthermore, I have always found interesting interacting with people abroad and from different countries: I am fluent in English (high intermediate, B2 certification) and I have a good comprehension of French which I studied 5 years in high school; I also have a basic knowledge of German and I am willing to learn Spanish.
The duration of the traineeship under this programme is 2 or 3 months. The traineeship can start a day between the 1st of September 2018 and the 30th of June 2019 and is to be completed by the 30th of September 2019.
If you accept trainees and this offer interests you, I will provide more information and guide you through the organisation and the arrangement.
I have to present all the documentation before the 8th of May, so I gently request a rapid response.
You can contact me via e-mail: email@example.com
Thank You for Your attention and Your help in this matter,
B.A. in Science and Food Technology

WHAT IS THE ERASMUS+ MOBILITY PROJECT?
"Erasmus+ – mobility for traineeships" is an action financed by the European Commission under the programme “Erasmus+” which promotes the organisation of students’ traineeships in European companies, with the aim of fostering their development of professional skills and competences. The traineeships organised by the University of Bologna for the academic year 2018/19 may have a duration of 2 months /60 days or 3 months/90 days. Traineeships can start between the 1st of September 2018 and the 30th of June 2019; internships must end by 30th September 2019 and they must be carried out without interruption.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF HOSTING AN ERASMUS+ TRAINEE?
the Erasmus+ trainee can introduce new ideas into the working environment and undertake projects that require qualified competences, increasing the work force when needed without any obligation of permanent employment by your company;
the linguistic knowledge of the trainee can provide you with new opportunities of making business contacts across domestic and foreign labour markets;
the trainee receives a grant from the University of Bologna of about € 400/350 per month; though there is no obligation, your company may contribute through an optional cash or any other additional contribution, like free meals, accommodation or free ground transportation.
WHAT DO COMPANIES INTERESTED IN HOSTING AN ERASMUS+ TRAINEE HAVE TO DO?
If you have been contacted by a student from the University of Bologna asking you to arrange an Erasmus+ traineeship, and if you accept to support his/her application, you will have to agree with him/her the following issues: - the duration of the traineeship period (2 or 3 months) - the starting date (choose a date between the 1st of September, 2018 and 30th of June, 2019) - the ending date (no later than September 30th, 2019) - the traineeship contents (activities to be performed, learning outcomes, etc.) - the language skills that are required for the traineeship. You may check his/her language skills yourself (by phone interview, for example), and declare your satisfaction to us, or let us know which language is required and we will check a minimum B1 CEFR level (lower-intermediate). - the identification of a tutor who will supervise and assist the student; the tutor will also keep in touch with us. In order to confirm your traineeship, offer, our student will request you to fill, sign and stamp the document “company agreement form”.
