MSc Scholarships in Environmental Contamination and Toxicology
The Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (ECT+) EMJMD is a Joint European MSc programme focused onto the understanding of the interactions between chemical pollution and living organisms and ecosystems and the management of the risk posed for the health of humans and the environment by the use and disposal of chemicals in a scenario of global change.
It has been conceived by leading universities in the field of the ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry (U Basque Country, U Bordeaux, U Liège, Norwegian U Sci & Technol, U Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, U Porto) with the priceless contribution of a global network of Associates.
The main goal of the ECT+ EMJMD programme is the formation of post-graduates in the knowledge developed in toxicology, ecotoxicology and chemistry for generating high-level technologists and scientists devoted to the scientifically based protection of the environment.
By addressing emerging One-Health concepts and paradigms, the programme will provide students the scientific basis required for covering the goals of the new European policies.
In its entirety, ECT+ EMJMD faces up to key scientific and technological challenges recognised as a priority by the European institutions, and combines a fully innovative scientific approach with the direct application of the results for protecting human health and the environment.
The aim of the ECT+ programme is to develop critical understanding of technical and scientific tools together with excellent management abilities and personal skills.
Added value of the integrated study programme:
The ECT+ EMJMD programme is the result of a structured cooperation between higher education institutions aimed to offer enhanced quality in higher education with a distinct European added value, attractive both within the EU and beyond its borders, and with a view to fostering excellence in environmental postgraduate teaching.
The structure of the ECT+ EMJMD in modules and its flexibility gives the student the opportunity to develop an individually tailored curriculum.
Environmental protection against pollution and associated risk management and policies require multidisciplinary team work and the integrated action of professionals with complementary expertise capable of understanding each other and promoting synergies.
Academic needs and opportunities.
Our vision is that graduates will be the next generation of scientists and managers who need to understand the global environment under the framework of the One Health principle (environmental health = human health) and to solve environmental problems derived from chemical pollution and related environmental stress sources at regional scale.
Erasmus Mundus Student Scholarships (EMSS)
- These scholarships are open to higher education Partner Country and Programme Country students from all over the world. They include obligatory study and research periods, in at least two universities, and recognised double, multiple or joint degree diplomas.
- They cover tuition fees, participation costs (including insurance coverage), travel cost contribution, installation cost contribution, and monthly allowance. EMSS are intended for full-time studies only.
- Students can apply for an EMMS even if they have not yet completed the studies required by the ECT consortium for the joint programme. They must however have completed the relevant degree before the enrolment deadline in the joint ECT+ EMJMD programme.
- Programme Country students are from the 27 EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway.Partner Country students are from any other country, provided they are not currently residents of these eligible countries (above), nor have carried out their main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of these countries.
- Students/scholars benefitting from an EMSS can benefit from other non-EU funded support while performing his/her EM joint programme activities (e.g. student jobs or placement/internship allowances) if the national legislation of the host country permits it.
- The basic and only rule in this case is that a Community funding beneficiary can never benefit from other Community financial support for the same activities for which he/she has already received funding.Erasmus Mundus Scholar Scholarships
- Thanks to the support from the European Commission, the ECT Consortium is in a position to offer scholarships to visiting scholars from outside of Europe.
- Every scholarship amounts to an average budget of 1 200 EUR per week, for a mobility of one week minimum (eq., 4+ working days including travel journeys).
- It is expected that scholars interact in an active way with the ECT+ EMJMD students during their stay at the partner institutions.Apply by 1st March.
