This Iberian program is fully financed by the Basque government. Expenses and compensation cover salary, travel expenses, accommodation, as well as health insurance. Participants who take part in the program will work in a Florida manufacturing company for six months.

This form is available on the FLATE website (http://www.fl-ate.org/images/front/docs/International%20I...).
