In 2021 CIHEAM Zaragoza started the process of renewal of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).
From 2014 to 2020 CIHEAM Zaragoza held the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education and benefited from financial aids of this programme for the mobility of their students.
These aids are in the framework of the Erasmus+ mobility programme KA103: Mobility for traineeships (work placement in industries, research institutions or other relevant workplaces) in countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme.
The traineeships are carried out during the second year of the Master, as a part of the Master thesis and in agreement with the tutor of the thesis, or at the end of the second year, for a maximum financed period of 3 months.
Students of any nationality registered at CIHEAM Zaragoza can apply for these aids. Each academic year the conditions of the call are announced as well as the deadline for application. Students have to prove a good knowledge of the language in which they will communicate with the traineeship tutor.
CIHEAM Zaragoza can also receive students from European universities. Students interested must approach CIHEAM Zaragoza to be informed of the study conditions according to their choice, and the necessary arrangements for signing the corresponding agreements with their institutions.
CIHEAM Zaragoza forms part of the Consortium of the Erasmus Mundus Master in Sustainable Management of Food Quality (EDAMUS), being one of the three partners that award the diplomas.
EDAMUS offers a cross-disciplinary (biology, technology, sociology, economics, law, etc.) and transnational approach to food quality and security. The education offer of CIHEAM Zaragoza to EDAMUS students focuses on agro-food marketing and economics.
