In 2005, a dedicated group of researchers and educators launched The FAME NoE and designed its unique curriculum to foster innovation and equip young researchers to address the most pressing research questions of our time.

Today, EMMI is following the durable integration of this education and research community and the model is attracting the interest of a wider range of stakeholders, including industry, policy makers and leading research institutions worldwide.

The best class students from around the world apply for the Erasmus Mundus FAME Master, where they can follow an international Master Program by visiting different Key Universities in Europe. This Master Program has a great success since 5 years now and will recruit the next generation of talents from October 15Th to December 30th.

Each year about 25 world class new PhD projects are proposed to high quality international students , within the frame of the IDS-FunMat Erasmus Mundus Doctoral school. These projects, in co-supervision between two countries and with an industrial sponsor, offer a unique opportunity to talented students to learn a global leadership attitude in a dual environment.

I would like to encourage talented students and PhD candidates from around the world to apply for this two programmes, which promises to be an enriching one for all concerned.

I also invite members of the global community to consider collaboration with EMMI at your institution. Beyond the immediate benefit - a bright group of young researchers with innovative, ready-to-implement research ideas - our research projects also produce strong global and institutional ties that will benefit your organization for many years to come!

I look forward to working with you!
