The European Commission has granted the University of Groningen the coordination of a new prestigious Erasmus Mundus Action 2 project with South Africa.
The consortium “EU-Saturn” (the EUropean South African programme in Tuning for Regional Needs in higher education) provides for scholarships for South African students and staff to do study/research at one of the seven EU partner universities. The programme is coordinated by the University of Groningen together with the University of the Free State in South Africa. The University of Groningen has experience with the coordination of previous EMA2 projects in Mexico (2008), Mexico & Central America (2009) and Argentina (2011).
EU-Saturn has budgeted a total of 82 mobilities for master, PhD and staff mobility from South Africa to Europe that will take place in the period 2013-2016. Mobilities may take place in a broad range of academic fields: Agriculture Sciences, Architecture; Urban and Regional Planning; Business Studies, Management Science; Education, Teacher Training; Engineering, Technology; Geography, Geology; Mathematics, Informatics; Medical Sciences; Natural Sciences; Social Sciences; Communication and Information Sciences; and Renewable Energy, Climate Change and Human Rights.
