About us

EU-Praktikum THURINGIA is the office of the consortium of Thuringian higher education institutions, which promotes the cooperation between higher education and business in a centralized manner and prepares and implements mobility projects at the European level for this purpose. The main focus of the work is the realization of internships abroad for different target groups - students, graduates and trainees. The special competence of the office lies in the experiences since 1992 as a training partnership university-industry with a broad regional and transnational partnership network. European programs such as LEONARDO DA VINCI, ERASMUS, the Lifelong Learning Program LLP, and since 2014 ERASMUS+ have been used to attract funding for stays abroad. Annual successful projects demonstrate the sustainability of the office's work at TU Ilmenau.

Members of the consortium are:

  • University of Erfurt
  • University of Applied Sciences Erfurt
  • Technische Universität Ilmenau
  • Friedrich Schiller University Jena
  • Ernst Abbe University Jena
  • University of Applied Sciences Nordhausen
  • University of Applied Sciences Schmalkalden
  • Bauhaus University Weimar
  • University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar

The partners in the consortium benefit by reducing the bureaucratic requirements at their institutions. Intensive cooperation is maintained with all International Offices; equal treatment of all participating higher education institutions is a principle of our work.

EU-Praktikum THURINGIA arranges and supervises internships mainly in companies. The target area is the European area. In the internships financial grants are handed out. Furthermore, support for interns from abroad is also provided. For this extensive work, a network with project partners throughout Europe is maintained and expanded.

EU-Praktikum THURINGIA is supported professionally and financially by the Thuringian Ministry of Economy, Science and Digital Society.
