EM3E-4SW, Erasmus Mundus Master in Membrane Engineering for a Sustainable World

The Erasmus Mundus Master in Membrane Engineering for a Sustainable World, EM3E-4SW (earlier EM3E), offers an advanced educational programme related to membrane science and engineering at the interface between material science and chemical engineering and focused on specific applicative fields.

The master was born in 2010. In that year, it was labelled by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Master for the period 2011-2017. In 2016, the European Commission renewed the label under the Erasmus+ programme and confirmed the excellence of the programme.

The master involves 6 High Education Institutions of 5 European countries: University of Twente (Netherlands), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal), Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain), University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (Czech Republic), Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France) and Université de Montpellier (France, coordinating organisation). Associated partners are the Università della Calabria (Italy) and the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium).

The pedagogical project of Master comes from the close collaboration between partners through the European Research Network of Excellence NanoMemPro (EU-FP6) started in 2004.

* Erasmus+ programme, Erasmus Mundus scheme, is an educational programme launched by the European Commission to promote the cooperation and mobility of higher education. It is a unique opportunity to offer attractive scholarships to non-European and European students by placing emphasis on the diversity of the students’ origin.
