About This Project

In February 2018, a group of 16 students from Elbląg (Poland) spent their time in Seville for an internship as solar energy installers and hairdressers. They learned more about their future jobs in theoretical and practical training courses, enhancing their knowledge and skills and carrying out several tasks, such as:



  • Recognizing the qualities of solar energy (and the risks of working with it) and the types of photovoltaic cells: polycrystalline, monocrystalline and amorphous.
  • Measuring voltage and current and using a multimeter according to the inclination grade.
  • Gathering the panels in series and in parallel, and checking its parameters.
  • Recognizing and identifying different types of controllers, its programming and functioning.
  • Checking, identifying and maintaining the batteries and the inverters.
  • Assembling, calculating and designing a solar installation on a computer, an electrical panel, AC power circuits and solar circuits of the house, plumbing installation with the solar pump and a solar lamp with twilight switch.



Moreover, they learned some Andalusian cultural and historical features during a Spanish course and a Seville tour. They also had the chance to do a study visit in an international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, where they broaden their knowledge about thermo-solar technologies and its uses in the human development. Apart from that, they also visited the beautiful cities of Cádiz and Málaga.

We hope that our trainees learned a lot, both about their field of study and their personal training experience in a foreign country. We wish them all the best for their future.

I am glad that I managed to get to Spain from the EuroMind project because there are very nice people here and despite the language barriers you can get along with them and even laugh together. Practices go incredibly quickly with Manuel, I learned a few new things and got to know interesting techniques. Spanish lessons were very interesting. I was not bored for a moment and the best was that Maria was able to combine learning with fun and practical approach. Sevilla is a beautiful place I could not keep up to turn the head the views were breath-taking. I do not want to leave this wonderful place, I would like to stay here longer.

am satisfied with the opportunity to participate in the EuroMind project. Our coordinator welcomed us very warmly and presented us with an agenda (or schedule of activities and excursions). Our Spanish teacher Mari introducing a nice and fun atmosphere made our education more pleasant. Referring to the practice, Manuel provided us with a day full of exciting work, at which we learned a lot. We also had solar barbeque assembly, from which the grub was delicious. On the weekend we went to Malaga and Cadiz. Agata gave us interesting information about these warm cities with a rich history, and in the meantime we met the culture and traditions of these lands on our own. By experiencing all this, I want to stay here.

Spanish. Overall I had a great time here.’
