DescriptionCIHEAM’s aims are threefold: to propagate a common scientific culture for the food and agriculture sector; to work in cooperative networks with national agricultural education and research institutions; to provide a Mediterranean forum where governments can discuss prospects for food and agriculture. CIHEAM seeks to be an instrument for Mediterranean cooperation, a pivotal centre and support base for initiatives linking Europe and the Mediterranean. The four Mediterranean Agronomic Institutes (MAIs) (in Bari, Italy; Chania, Greece; Montpellier, France; Zaragoza, Spain) have established a strong cooperative network of education and research institutes in all 13 CIHEAM member countries. CIHEAM offers eighteen different programs in four areas of prime importance for the development of the Mediterranean region: Environment and natural resources management; Food production and quality management; Economics, management and development policies; Fisheries and aquaculture. These two-year MSc programs are given by the MAIs. A DSPU (post-graduate specialised diplomas) is obtained upon successful completion of the first year. The Master of Science degree is awarded at the end of the second year, in which students have to complete a research project. the CIHEAM MAIs also offers short courses for professionals.
