AGRINATURA is partner in the following projects in the area of training and education:
Master ACT is an integrated MSc, leading to a joint degree: European Master of Sciences Agriculture, Climate change, Transitions. Master ACT focuses on the interactions between agriculture and climate change, while aiming at achieving food security and sustainable development. It is a two-year programme of 120 ECTS (European Credits Transfer System), oriented towards the tropics and developing countries. Studen study one year in one European University, the second year in another country (Course framework) and get joint degree at the end. Master ACT prepares to handle various functions in research, training, support to agricultural development and design and evaluation of agricultural policies in a context of climate change.
is a two-year training programme of 120 ECTS (European Credits Transfer System) in agricultural development and management of natural resources. The ambition of the Agris Mundus Masters course is to provide experts who can fulfil positions in the numerous national and international organisations in charge of agricultural and rural development in the developing countries. Training objectives cope with the current international and global concerns in agricultural development. Graduates are qualified to identify and critically analyse key factors shaping the development of crop, forest and animal production, the management of research and rural development projects and finally, the sustainable use of natural resources and the environment. They are trained to formulate and provide effective and appropriate responses to complex agriculture and natural resources related issues.
The essential goal of the project is to exchange capacities between Asian and European universities oriented to Life Sciences, Food, Agriculture, Biology, Environment and Technology to respond to the main international challenges addressed to the well-being of the next generations: agriculture, food safety and security, technologies in life sciences, balanced management of the natural resources, sustainable rural development, adaptation to climate change, with a special attention to the contexts of rapid economic growth. The project aims to contribute to increase the relevance, the capacities and efficiency of the higher education (HE) system in Asia by strengthening of the existing network of cooperation among universities in the above mentioned fields.
ASK Asia – Agriculture, Skills, Knowledge
Erasmus Mundus project focused on evaluation of competences and employability of EM graduates at Asian market. The objectives of the project ASK Asia are to assess how the Erasmus Mundus (EM) graduates in Agriculture and related Life Sciences perform on the professional job market in Asia and to identify their specific competences and skills archived thanks to the EM programme. The project will allow European and Asian universities to discuss their comparative advantages in educational training and the specificities required for the Asian job market.
AFEPA – European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis
The new European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis (AFEPA) is jointly organised by the Université catholique de Louvain, the Corvinus University of Budapest, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, the University of Bonn and the Technical University of Catalonia. The European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis aims at providing a high quality education in designing and assessing public policies targeted to the agricultural and food sector as well as the rural environment. This European Master responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies either in a functioning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase.
CASIA – Central Asia Student International Academic exchange with EU
The CASIA project is an Erasmus Mundus Partnership with Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistanand Uzbekistan. The project aims at fostering structured cooperation between European and Third Country higher education institutions. CASIA project promotes mobility at all level of studies for students (undergraduate and master), doctoral candidates, researchers, academic and administrative staff. Read more in the flyer and in the poster for scholarships. The Consortium brings a wide range of disciplines together, but focuses on agriculture, life sciences, trans-boundary natural resource management, climate change andenvironmental practices required for mitigation of consequences of the Aral Sea disasterand finding solutions for increasing competition between CA countries for water, e.g. in a view of agriculture and energy production. The chosen main disciplines are addressing the regional, common needs of four CA -countries involved. The wider objective is very relevant in the context of modernisation of partner Universities and adaptation of their education capabilities towards reformed countries economy in the region.
The overall objectiveof EULALinks is to deepen the existing cooperative relations between universities in Latin American (LA) and Europe, contributing to the creation of internationally attractive, competence oriented and high-quality education & research activities, as well as promoting multidisciplinary, multilateral academic and scientific cooperation with a long-term perspective. The mobility scheme consists of mobilities in undergraduate, master, doctorate, post-doctorate and staff levels.
TIMUR – Training of Individuals through Mobility to EU from Uzbek Republic
The wider objective of Partnership is ‘From Life Sciences to Sciences for Life’ and collaborations between all life sciences stakeholders, from academic to private sector, to policy makers and civil society and to improve the networking and knowledge exchange between the public and private sectors as well as between industry and research.
