"EURASIACAT: Advanced Education European-Asiatic Exchange Programme in Materials Science and Catalysis" is an Erasmus Mundus Action-2 Strand-2 (EMA2/S2) project funded by the European Union. The project has a duration of 48 months, starting in July 2014 and finishing in July 2018.

The aim of EURASICAT is to offer multidisciplinary training in designing advanced functional materials and catalytic processes. EURASIACAT is based on a partnership composed of 11 universities (5 from Europe + 6 from Hong Kong / Taiwan / Singapore / Macau). In addition, 
CSIC, the Spanish Research Council, acts as associated partner. The eleven universities that support this consortium are of a very high academic level, and the academic key persons involved are all well recognized in their respective fields of research.

The main objective of the project is offering scholarships/fellowships at Master, Doctorate, Postdoc and Staff (Academic /Administrative) levels (Undergraduate is NOT supported) to pursue study/research/teaching in the fields of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering. Grantees will receive cutting-edge education in all the research skills required for the design of a catalytic process, being the main objective of EURASICAT multidisciplinary team to rationally design functional materials and the processes in which they are involved, which include: synthesis and characterization of advanced nano-engineered materials, advanced spectroscopic characterization, theoretical studies to uncover reaction/adsorption mechanisms and kinetics, and process & reactor design.

    07. OVERVIEW

    • Objective: creating a solid and long-term sustainable network (EURASIACAT-N) of EU/Asian institutions with the objective of fostering academic, cultural, social and economical links.
    • Building blocks:
    1. Mobility of individuals;
    2. Structured cooperation.
    • Goal: selecting the most talented individuals based on academic, professional and personal merits, so that they receive high-quality academic/professional training.
    • Emphasis: maximizing grantees’ employability.
    • EURASIACAT Training Programme (EURASIACAT-TP):
      - Career Center (CC): academic/professional advice.
      - Short Traineeship Period (STP): 1-3 months.
    • Mobility: EU-TC (bi-directional).
