Joint Programmes

EURON continuously is investigating in new projects to encourage the international research collaborations and joint educational programmes.

Since October 2013 EURON partners have started a bilateral cooperation with three Japanese partner universities under the ICI-Education Cooperation Programme of the EU: EDU-NEURO EU-JP

Since 2015 a joint collaboration in Translational Neuroscience has been started between EURON and Chinese partners, which will result in the selection of Chinese PhD candidates coming to Maastricht and to other EURON partners. These programmes are financed through the CSC and CAS programme. MHeNs collaborates intensively with two Chinese research institutes: the West China Hospital and the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UEST), both located in Chengdu Sichuan Province, China. Seven Chinese PhD students have started their PhD trajectory at MHeNs since 2015.

Recently, in 2015, Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) have been signed with South Korean partners, Ajou University and Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) for the exchange of PhD students, and both partners have indicated to be interested in the establishment of a double degree PhD programme.
