Avempace Erasmus Mundus Action 2 Jordan and Syria.

Avempace is a mobility exchange programme coordinated by Technische Universität Berlin (TUB), Germany, in which Cardiff Met is a partner. 

With a project consortium made up of 10 EU Universities, 5 Syrian Universities and 5 Jordanian Universities, the project aims at enhancing the academic cooperation between European and Jordanian and Syrian universities by bringing together students, staff and researchers involved in the similar disciplines or forming multidisciplinary teams to cover research domains identified by the Jordanian and Syrian universities as "priorities". The mobility activities supported by the project will be a step toward the creation of more co-diplomas and co-thesis with stronger exchanges between PhD students from both EU and the Arab side.

The first call for applications took place between 28th November 2011 and 23rd January 2012.  For more information about Avempace, please visit the project website: http://www.avempace.eu/
