A traineeship at the European Commission is much more than just a professional experience.
Each batch of trainees organises a huge range of social activities, from football to wine-tasting and much in between – in true bureaucratic fashion, each with its own organising committee! There are usually 40-50 of such activities to choose from.
The main social committee is the Stage Committee, which organises parties and social events in Brussels and Luxembourg. Among the most popular events are the Job Fair, to help you work out your next step, and the prestigious Euroball.
