Stagiaires from the European Institutions have a ball to celebrate the end of their time in the Eurobubble.


Coming to live in Brussels is always a great and intense experience. Whether you are a professional or an intern at any of the several associations or institutions that are based here, you will be able to get the European vibe all over the city. Getting to meet dozens of people from different nationalities on a daily basis is something that doesn’t happen that often in other cities, but here it does. You might know that Place Lux on Thursdays is the place to be to do so.



With the European elections ahead, young people are asking what European politicians will really do for them. The trainees from the European Parliament invite you to a discussion with key figures from European political parties.


Trainees in the EU institutions in Brussels enjoy the privilege of having elected representatives. But what do these do? What motivates them? We followed the representatives of the European Parliament’s Stagiaire Association.
