European Master’s Degree in Translational Neuroscience (EMTN)
The EMTN program is currently in the accreditation process. If the accreditation will be approved start date of the program is September 2018.
To complement the established PhD training program EURON is currently developing an international curriculum for a Master’s degree, funded by the European Union. This program, the European Master’s Degree in Translational Neuroscience (EMTN), which is designed to guarantee an outstanding international research training program in basic and translational neuroscience, is organized by EURON partner universities. The contributing research centers, which offer specific expertise in many neuroscience-related disciplines and excel in complementary fields within the neurosciences, will provide the educational and research expertise required for the multidisciplinary training of the students. The two university hospitals within the consortium (Maastricht University Hospital and the Universitätsklinikum Aachen) highlight the medical needs that demand translational integration of basic neuroscience research.
The research master program consists of a full (two years) master’s curriculum in translational neuroscience which should lead to a joint degree recognized by the participating countries. As such, the EMTN curriculum can form the link between different local master programs in neuroscience in Europe. The EMTN is one of the first international programs to present a curriculum that is completely integrated between a number of universities located in different member states of the EU. In this respect, the proposed cross-border program is unique in comparison to all national neuroscience programs of the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.
The development of this master programme is supported by a grant of the Erasmus Program Life Long Learning (2009-2012).
Edu-Neuro EU-JP is a two year Double European-Japan Master Degree in the field of Biomedicine and Neuroscience consisting of four EU and three Japanese partners exchanging 40 students in each direction for ten months, and faculty members for a total of 48 weeks in one or two week visits. The goals of Edu-Neuro EU-JP are: to achieve educational excellence by creating synergies combining the strenghts of the partners existing Master's Degree programmes across the field of neuroscience and to award two separate Degrees.
