What is it all about?

Well managed, high-quality internships should be beneficial to both Future Cities Catapult and for you, the intern(s). You should develop professional skills and an understanding of a profession by undertaking work of value for Future Cities Catapult whilst enhancing your future employability.

The internship will provide you with an opportunity to connect theory with practice and form professional contacts and networks and will bring to our organisation fresh eyes and new ideas.
