Vacature EGEN

What will you do

An internship at EGEN means gaining experience in and working within a dynamic and energetic team. You will be given the opportunity to participate as much as possible in our green innovation consultancy work.

The internship is an educational internship, during which you will come in contact with many different innovation and sustainability topics. This internship will focus specifically on the topic of circular cities and regions, but you will have a chance to be part of projects within all of our sectors.

The working environment within EGEN is characterized by an accessible, open culture, in which your colleagues are ready to support you in your development.

Your daily tasks

During your internship you will help our consultants who work in the Coordination and Support Office of the European Circular Cities and Regions Initiative to answer questions like:

  • What knowledge and expertise do cities and regions across Europe require to develop and implement Circular Systemic Solutions (CSS) to accelerate the transition to circular economy (CE)?
  • How to support cities and regions with developing a (collaborative) business case for their CSS?
  • What funding and financial opportunities are available for cities and regions to support implementation of their local CSS?

You will also have the opportunity to work with consultants across teams to address other green innovation assignments. In order to answer these questions you might need to:

  • Identify and analyze public and private funding opportunities.
  • Support with monitoring and identifying different types of knowledge useful for cities and regions to bring their local CSS forward (e.g. papers, reports, tools, methods, webinars, e-learning etc.).
  • Be involved in research on collaborative business models for CSS.
