The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation is inviting European companies to host selected Japanese students - in their third or fourth year of undergraduate studies - as trainees for a period of eight months.

This initiative forms part of the 'Vulcanus in Europe' programme, which the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation launched in 1996 to contribute to the stimulation and improvement of industrial cooperation and mutual understanding between Japan and the EU. The programme is aimed both at providing EU companies with outstanding Japanese students to help them develop their business with Japan, and at building a pool of future Japanese executives with the potential to help their future employers develop business relationships between Europe and Japan.

The programme includes:

- A one week seminar on Europe (April 2000);
- A four month intensive course in a European language (April to July 2000);
- An eight month traineeship in a European company (August 2000 to March 2001).
The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation has been running training programmes in Japan for European executives since 1987, as a joint venture between the European Commission's Directorate-General for Industry (DG III) and the Japanese Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI). It launched the Vulcanus in Europe programme in 1996.

The deadline for applications for participation in the Vulcanus programme is 30 September 1999.
