The AER Exchange programme
Connecting youth, regions, businesses and institutions

Youth – Financing

Trainees will either receive a grant or be paid a salary depending on how the Eurodyssée programme is run in the Region concerned.

Bearing in mind the time the payment comes through, in some cases, trainees are advised to take enough money with them to cover their needs during the first month of the traineeship.


Insurance cover

An insurance policy covering personal accident, civil liability, and health and repatriation is taken out and financed for each trainee by the Eurodyssée general secretariat and the AER.

The “Insurance Conditions of the Eurodyssey Programme” document is available in English and French

Trainees who hold the European Health Insurance Card can access health care services in the destination region during their stay abroad.

As for the social security scheme, the coverage will depend on the traineeship regulation in the destination region (see Regions traineeship conditions).

Important (if applicable): before going abroad to work, trainees are responsible for obtaining information from their home region about the procedures for reintegration into the social security system at the end of the traineeship or work placement.
