What is a short-term study visit?

A short-term study visit gives the opportunity to PhD researchers, young graduates and students to acquire practical expertise in their field of study by opening its doors to interesting researches. If you believe that your studies and projects could acquire a positive input from an experience in EFSA, try to propose your project. Depending on EFSA’s availability and opportunities, you could have the occasion to develop your expertise in a scientific and active multicultural environment.

EFSA has launched a permanent study visits call in order to create a database of eligible candidates (eligibility criteria defined on the ‘Decision on the traineeship and short-term study visit schemes at EFSA’). The database will be used by the Authority in order to select the study visitor applications which better suit EFSA’s scientific projects.

Please, see section “Traineeship: selection procedure” because the procedure is similar and has to be done through the online recruitment tool.

Even if you apply for the short-term study visit as part of a compulsory course, it is not guaranteed that you will be offered the program. Due to the limited number of short-term study visits foreseen and due to the high number of application forms we usually receive, there is no guarantee that you will be selected. We do not need to receive any confirmation related to the compulsory course from your professor when you apply for the short-term study visit.

Whom should I contact, if I still have a question after having checked the FAQs?

If your query is not related to any issue dealt with in the FAQs, please feel free to contact us at study-visit@efsa.europa.eu.
