EURASIACAT (Advanced Education European-Asiatic Exchange Programme in Materials Science and Catalysis) programme is based on a partnership composed of 11 universities (5 from Europe + 6 from Hong Kong / Taiwan / Singapore / Macau), 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, which include:

  • Synthesis and characterization of advanced nano-engineered materials,
  • Advanced spectroscopic characterization,
  • Theoretical studies to uncover reaction/adsorption mechanisms and kinetics,
  • Process and reactor design.

Candidates may apply up to a maximum of 3 host universities. This project does not support those belonging in Target Group 3 (TGIII).

How long is the duration of the programme?

The duration of the programme is 10 months for Masters students, 6 months/24 months/36 months for PhD researchers, 6 months for Post-Doctoral researchers, and one month for academic staff.
