Together with four consortium partners, the Neurolinguistics department has been given the right to award a prestigious Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate for the IDEALAB programme.
The three-year IDEALAB programme trains PhD students in the experimental and clinical aspects of languages and the brain in healthy children and adults, and in those with language difficulties.
A joint teaching programme and research conducted at two or more of the participating universities lead to a joint doctorate.
Professor in Neurolinguistics Roelien Bastiaanse is involved with IDEALAB on behalf of the University of Groningen as Director of Studies and one of the applicants.
The Erasmus Mundus funding and scholarship programme of the European Union supports outstanding international partnerships in higher education.
The Erasmus Mundus scholarships that may now be awarded are expected to lead to some ten PhD students joining the Groningen Neurolinguistics research group in the next five years.
