Announcing the EIT Food RIS Fellowships 2024: Apply Now !

The Activity Line is divided into 2 complementary programmes – RIS Fellowships dedicated to Master of Science students and graduates and RIS Talents dedicated to Ph.D. students and postdocs from EIT RIS countries which both aim to promote brain circulation, contributing to enhancing the innovativeness of personnel and development of scientific impact by supporting the creation and diffusion of high-quality new knowledge, skills, competences and solutions to food system challenges.

EIT Food RIS Fellowships Activity Line is searching for young and passionate individuals from higher education:

  • RIS Fellowships for MSc students, graduates, and entrepreneurs. Candidates will get the chance to apply their academic knowledge in real-world situations and develop their problem-solving skills at host organizations. The internship will allow them to gain hands-on experience in the food industry, enhancing their job-related skills and competencies. Interns will be involved in learning-by-doing activities, including internal projects and day-to-day tasks at their host company.
  • RIS Talents for doctoral students and young post-docs. Interns will benefit from lessons learned in R&D work and will be encouraged to participate in industrial collaboration or entrepreneurship during their internship. They will have the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills by participating in innovation projects, R&D projects led by host organizations, or Horizon Europe projects.
