  • from 16 February to 15 July (spring session);
  • from 16 September to 15 February of the following year (autumn session).

Each trainee is assigned to a specific department of the CoR. The nature of the work depends largely on the unit. Some units are more politically oriented, others are more administrative.

  • to put into practice knowledge acquired during studies, particularly in your areas of competence.

The CoR offers trainees the possibility to organize a study visit, under the supervision of the Traineeships Office.

  • living the reality of European integration, with a focus on the local and regional perspective;
  • contributing to the CoR’s work by drafting a report which can be used by units;
  • attending a wide range of conferences/forums/seminars on diverse subjects.

If a CoR trainee in receipt of a grant is also in receipt of income from a source external to the CoR during his/her in-service training period, he/she shall have no claim to any financial contribution from the CoR, save insofar as that external remuneration is less than the in-service training grant. In that event, he/she shall receive the difference up to the amount of that grant.

An additional monthly allowance of €100, 00 is awarded to:

  • a trainee who has dependent children (€100, 00/child/month).

A supplementary grant amounting to up to half of the monthly grant may be granted to a handicapped trainee after consideration of his/her individual situation.

The contribution of the trainee shall be one third of the premium, which will be deducted from the monthly grant, the remainder being borne by the CoR.

If a trainee wishes to use a different health insurance policy, proof of this insurance must be presented to the CoR before the start of the traineeship period. If this is not done within the provided deadline, the premium for the CoR insurance scheme will be deducted from the trainees’ grant by default and the trainee will be automatically insured through the CoR health insurance scheme.

A trainee who is recruited from anywhere except Brussels shall be entitled to the reimbursement of travel expenses incurred at the beginning and the end of the traineeship period, provided that his/her place of recruitment is within the geographical limits of the European Union, or of a State which is an official candidate for accession.
