Curiosity and imagination are gifts of nature that require nurture. An internship in a great and inspiring research group has often been the basis of an entire career.
Choose people, not only
programmes.

With these research projects you will be exposed to different research environments and teaching philosophies which will enrich your scientific knowledge.
You will learn how scientists use their imagination and work with them to find different answers to the pressing problems that our society is currently facing.

Good teaching will guide the next generation of scientists, but mentorship, involvement and practice will inspire them.
In this respect TINK provides a unique opportunity for young people from around the world to engage and work with the very best researchers in all branches of science
