The  Xperience initiative happens annually and gives Portuguese students the opportunity of doing a 4-week internship in the UK, under the supervision of a PARSUK member.

The Xperiece aims to promote the scientific culture in Portugal and increase the visibility of the knowledge and skills of the Portuguese students in the UK. It also promotes close collaborations between British and Portuguese institutions.

The scholarships allow:

  • the personal and professional development of the trainee;

  • the personal and professional development of the supervisor;

  • establishment and strengthening of contact networks and partnerships between the countries and institutions involved.

Xperience 2019: We have found the trainees and supervisors!

This year we are giving 3 scholarships in all areas of sciences.

This initiative will come back in February 2020, watch this space.
