Open to: graduate or postgraduate students with very good knowledge of English or French, and, preferably, a basic knowledge of German
Benefits: monthly allowance of approximately 720 EUR per month


The ECML offers traineeships, lasting in general 6 months, twice a year. Recruiting young professionals from all over Europe to join its team for a short period both reinforces the Centre’s role as a place of international cooperation and promotes an atmosphere of intercultural learning. For the trainees it often represents their first experience of an international organisation. The scheme which the ECML now offers is the result of a learning process and is adapted to meet the needs both of the Centre and the trainees themselves. According to their field of interest applicants can choose the main area in which they would like to be involved:

  • Organisation of events and meetings (Programme);
  • Documentation and resources (DRC);
  • The Centre’s website (Website);
  • Finances and general administration (Administration).


There are special requirements for applicants according to the selected field. Preference is given to applicants from ECML member states or currently studying in ECML member states.

Trainees receive a subsistence allowance of approximately 720 EUR per month, which is transferred by the Council of Europe at the end of each month. From this, a deduction of approximately 20 EUR is made each month from the trainees allowance to cover the costs of insurance during the stay.

No contribution is made by the ECML towards travel costs from the trainee’s home country to and from Graz.
