Summer Academy

Our Summer Academy is an annual initiative developed by Frulact in partnership with Higher Educational Entities. We challenge students to enter their projects and business ideas, to be developed with (and within) Frulact.

""Frulact Summer Academy gave me the opportunity to join a company, showing me first hand a real industrial environment that was unknown to me. This was a different, challenging and good mood experience! ""

""I think the Frulact Summer Academy is an extremely interesting and enriching internship program! This internship not only gave me the opportunity to materialize my idea but also allowed me to develop my creativity, acquire new knowledge and to contact with several incredible people from the Research, Development and Innovation departments who have always been very helpful. The four weeks I spent at Frulact were extremely positive, contributing to my professional and personal growth and so I will not hesitate to recommend my friends to the Frulact 2019 Summer Academy!
