"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 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.
