IMBRSea is selected again for Erasmus Mundus funding!
We are glad to announce that our Master program IMBRSea has once more been awarded by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Commission with Erasmus+ funds. The new version of our program which will start in September 2020 will be organized by 11 partner universities, spread in 8 different countries in Europe. Sweden's third oldest university, the University of Gothenburg, will be a new partner in the consortium. The close link with the EMBRC-ERIC Research network on Marine Biological Resources will be strengthened as well in the coming years.
The new version will encompass the already successful and very practical aspects of our program including professional practice, summer schools, and thesis research work and 24 different thematic modules and 5 thematic tracks.
With the Erasmus Mundus support, we will be able to grant several full scholarships for selected incoming students from the academic year 2021-22 onwards for four consecutive intakes. This is great news because it guarantees the high cultural diversity our students encounter while being in our program.
IMBRSea was one of the 40 Master's programs awarded from 100 applications. We believe that being the largest consortium in all EM programs, being practical, innovative, and always trying to improve diversity has played a big role in this success.
We would like to thank all our partners and students that have and continue to collaborate with IMBRSea.
