Contacting Foreign Chambers of Commerce may be also helpful for your students
There are a number of Foreign Chambers of Commerce present in every country.
It may be helpful to search the Chamber of Commerce of the country where the students are coming from, whether it is present in their internship destination country as well. Chambers can help students to connect with local companies – potential host organizations for their internships.
You can find several contacts on Foreign Chambers of Commerce in EU countries here: www.eurochambers.eu
Or simply “google” search for the particular Chamber in your country of interest.
