The internship program of EWB-DK is established with different objectives, but our main focus is to globally support and develop technical knowledge and capacity. By sending students and young professionals into the field, we seek to develop our local partner's knowledge and know-how as well as expand Danish technical students and young professionals knowledge by working in a global context, and thereby from a practical approach support an increased international focus on Danish technical capacity.
