Announcement of the new International Erasmus Mundus MSc degree program “Environmental Contamination and Toxicology”

In september 2020, a new International Erasmus Mundus MSc degree program “Environmental Contamination and Toxicology” (ECT+) will be launched for international postgraduates students. This program is a multidisciplinary and international 2 year course, taught entirely in English. ECT+ provides training in academic excellence in the fields of ecotoxicology, toxicology and environmental chemistry (http://www.ectplus.eu/).

This joint program developed by a consortium of six leading European universities in the domains of ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry from 4 different countries, is coordinated by the University of the Basque Country (Spain), in partnership with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway), the University of Porto (Portugal), the University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour (France), the University of Liège Belgium) and the University of Bordeaux, with contributions of a global network of associates.

Please visit our website (http://www.ectplus.eu/)and share the information with your students.
