Erasmus Mundus - IMACS Scholarships

The Erasmus Mundus Masters Course “International Master in Advanced Clay Science” plans to form high level graduates in the field of clay science by providing them the competence, fundamental knowledge and skill necessary to perfectly assimilate the more recent developments in clay science and their applied perspectives.
 
IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 5 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science :UP : University of Poitiers in France ; TUC : Technical University of Crete (Chania) in Greece ; UA : University of Aveiro in Portugal ; UO : University of Ottawa in Canada ; UFRGS : Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Porto Alegre) in Brazil.
