The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) joins the Fiat Likes U project which includes a completely free car-sharing service for the students of 15 universities and Lectio Magistralis with Fiat designers, engineers and managers. In addition the initiative includes 15 paid Fiat Ambassador jobs managing the project at each university and paid on-the-job training opportunities.
The overall aim of the project is to find new talent and potential in European universities. Through the joint actions Fiat and ESN expect the project to reach over 700.000 students.
Stefan Jahnke, the President of ESN AISBL, stated on the new partnership with the Fiat Likes U project: “As Europe’s biggest student organisation, ESN is setting a clear sign with this very exciting partnership. In times of economic crisis it is important to strengthen the collaboration between the academic world and the private sector. Therefore I am very happy that Fiat Likes U has identified the benefits of collaborating with ESN to reach out to young Europeans with a mobility experience. Offering high quality jobs and traineeships is a crucial success factor for each European company nowadays. Combined with Fiat’s great enthusiasm for mobility, our synergies are the perfect framework for a long lasting partnership.”
During the course of 2014 and 2015 the Fiat Likes U project is implemented in The Netherlands, Spain, Poland, Denmark and Italy. For more information about the Fiat Likes U project and the different activities to take place around Europe, please visit the following webpage: http://www.fiatlikesu.eu
