Traineeship from 1 September 2017 to 31 August 2018
When Ramón started his traineeship at SwissCore, he had just graduated from St. Gallen University of Applied Sciences with a Bachelor’s degree in International Management. His traineeship was organised in cooperation with swissuniversities for their chairmanship in UAS4EUROPE, the Brussels-based networking platform for Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS). Ramón supported the UAS4EUROPE Representative, Luciana Vaccaro (Rector HES-SO), with organising meetings and events and promoting UAS4EUROPE towards European institutions and relevant stakeholders. Next to that, he tracked the developments of the Horizon 2020 successor programme (Horizon Europe) and worked with the European Advisor for Innovation on topics related to European innovation policy. In particular, he focused on the emergence of the European Innovation Council (EIC), which will be part of Horizon Europe and on digital topics, such as Artificial Intelligence, blockchain and High-Performance Computing).
