The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Unit of Information Technology and Management (ITM) in Copenhagen has the vital role of providing ICT and Green Energy solutions to UNDP Country Offices worldwide. Our Unit offers an enriching and diverse internship experience in an international setting, connecting with partners from approximately 166 countries where UNDP operates. We foster a dynamic and informal work environment and view our interns as integral team members.
As an intern, you will be assigned tasks and opportunities that directly contribute to the global development efforts of the international community. The UNDP/ITM Green Energy Support internship program enriches the academic journey of passionate students, empowering them to become socially responsible, innovative, and environmentally conscious leaders of the future. Our program bridges the gap between theoretical learning and practical industry experience, immersing interns in the world's leading clean energy and sustainability initiatives while considering local contexts.
Being part of our dynamic unit, you will also have the chance to establish global connections with other talented interns and UN staff from different agencies. Our office is situated at the UN City in Copenhagen, enabling you to interact with individuals beyond the UNDP ITM unit.
