Euro-BioImaging is launching a pilot for industry internships together with the Master’s Programme in Biomedical Imaging (BIMA) in Turku, Finland, and Industry Board members ZEISS and TissueGnostics GmbH.

As part of this pilot, companies will offer students internship places that will be credited towards the MSc programme to get to know different job profiles in industry.

The trilateral Memorandum of Understanding was signed in December 2021 and first students are expected in spring 2022.

For information on how to apply for an internship at one of our partner companies, contact the Programme Coordinators in Turku at bima-office@bioimaging.fi.
