Opportunities for short term visits at the Competence Centre on Behavioural Insights (CCBI) in Brussels

The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission: Competence Centre on Behavioural Insights (CCBI) and the Department of Economics and Management of the University of Trento have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a mutually beneficial cooperation in the field of behavioural sciences and design for policy, and facilitate the hosting of Master students during unpaid short-term visits (ideally 3 months) at the JRC in Brussels.

The Department of Economics and Management will draft a short list of potential students that can apply to JRC. The UniTrento selection does not guarantee the approval from JRC: JRC will personally select the students, based on the short list provided by the University of Trento. 

The visit is organized in the context of the EU Policy lab of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission: Competence Centre on Behavioural Insights (CCBI) and the Design for Policy team:

  • The CCBI supports policymaking by providing evidence on human behaviour, with activities including running own behavioural research, providing expert assistance to other departments of the European Commission (EC) - to embed behavioural evidence into policymaking – and building EC capacity on behavioural insights.
  • The Design for Policy team applies design tools and methods to improve and innovate evidence-based policymaking. The activities include running own research and experimental design projects, providing expert assistance and process design and facilitation to other departments of the European Commission – and building EC capacity on design.

The visit will be recognized by the Department of Economics and Management as compulsory internship.

The internship can not be granted with Erasmus scholarship.
