Erasmus Mundus Master in Chemistry, Physical-Chemistry and Material Science


4 locations available

Program Description

The master SERP+ is an English taught two-year program funded by the Erasmus + programme of the European Commission

It gathers 4 leading European research universities:

  • Unviersité Paris-Saclay, France (coordinating institution)
  • Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland
  • University of Genoa, Italy
  • University of Porto, Portugal

Our goal

It aims at training experts in the most advanced experimental and theoretical tools developed in chemistry, physical-chemistry and materials science, making them ready to develop innovative ideas and enterprises related to sustainable developments in Energy, Health and Environment.

It also includes elements of Management, Business, Innovation and Valorisation, Communication and Patent law.

The international study programme includes courses, tutorials, and lab training in cutting-edge areas related to renewable energies, green chemistry, radiation effects, nanomaterials for the industry and nanomedicine. A strong partnership with SMEs, academic institutions and research and innovation centres in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, allow the students to strengthen their professional skills and build their network.

The students must complete their training with a 6-month internship in the academic sector or in the industry. An intensive summer school also fosters the students' entrepreneurial skills including economy management, communication, patent law, and technology transfer so they can face the job market.

Mobility Scheme

At the end of the master, the students are awarded a multiple diploma according to the mobility track they followed:

  • Master in Chemistry from Unviersité Paris-Saclay
  • Master in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Genoa
  • Master in Chemistry from the University of Porto
  • Master in Chemistry from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan

International Summer school
