DescriptionErasmus Mundus was a cooperation and mobility programme in the field of higher education that aims to enhance the quality of European higher education and to promote dialogue and understanding between people and cultures through cooperation with Third-Countries. The programme ran until 2013. In addition, it contributes to the development of human resources and the international cooperation capacity of Higher education institutions in Third Countries by increasing mobility between the European Union and these countries. The Erasmus Mundus programme provides support to: (i) higher education institutions that wish to implement joint programmes at postgraduate level (Action 1) or to set-up inter-institutional cooperation partnerships between universities from Europe and targeted Third-Countries (Action 2); (ii) individual students, researchers and university staff who wish to spend a study/research/teaching period in the context of one of the above mentioned joint programmes or cooperation partnerships (Action 1 and Action 2); (iii) any organisation active in the field of higher education that wishes to develop projects aimed at enhancing the attractiveness, profile, visibility and image of European higher education worldwide (Action 3). Erasmus Mundus consists of more than 100 Masters level degree programmes of which three are in the field of forestry only (Master of Science in European Forestry; Sustainable Tropical Forestry; and Sustainable Forest and Nature Management) with more Masters programmes in related fields.
