These are the 13 CERFA members that this year host students of science from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and Universidad de Castilla la Mancha (UCLM) as part of our 2022 CERFA Traineeship Programme. To further aid to develop the careers of these students, CERFA awards them with a travel grant and a workshop in career exploration (more information here).

We thank our host CERFA members for providing the students with this opportunity and hope that the students can make the best out of their international experience.
