  • 9. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium Where do we want to go with our partners? F G I  Offering a unique learning experience for our studentsMunich (D)  Towards long-lasting scientific collaborations and cultural exchange in a network of excellence (NoE)  Help to manage our EMMC (recruitment, supervison ofTorino (I) students, QA)  Towards common curricula/diplomaRennes1 (F) with Japan, India and SwitzerlandCoordinator  Common master-thesis and PhD thesis projects with international research centres and industry
  • 10. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium How to reach this goal? F G I 1st: Scientifically strong partners 2nd: operating personal relations and permanent engagementMunich (D) Minimum condition to be credible: You need excellent students and excellent projects!!!!Torino (I)Rennes1 (F)Coordinator
  • 11. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium F G I Fostering the EMMC: scientific interference of 3rd country partners, research centres and industryMunich (D)  common scientific interests:Torino (I) - common application for funding for scientific projects - common master thesis projectsRennes1 (F)Coordinator - common thesis projects - financing common thesis projects
  • 12. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium 1st example: INDIA (IIT Madras) F G I - 3rd ranked institute (national level)Munich (D) - long lasting relations with IIT staff and long experience in students exchangeTorino (I) - India wants to renew totally their neutron and synchrotron park (need: scientific infrastructure)Rennes1 (F) Excellent conditions for collaborations:Coordinator  MoU agreed and signed in 2009  Common diploma from 2010 on
  • 13. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium Strong impact for students’ recruitment, course F G I promotion and master thesis supervision:  Local EMMC promotion via flyers and personalMunich (D) communication by Indian professors  Implication of Indian professors in the students’ selectionTorino (I) is mandatory for a high quality non-EU students recruitment  Common master thesis supervision of EU and non-EURennes1 (F)Coordinator students reinforces common scientific (and administrative) activities, and effectively anticipates to avoid problems with the master thesis organisation
  • 14. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium F G I 2nd example: Japan (Kyoto and Yamanashi University) - scientific excellenceMunich (D) - long lasting relations with staff - obtained funding for common scientific projects toTorino (I) foster relations between partner institutions - MoU signed between Japanese and EU institutionsRennes1 (F)Coordinator - long tradition in students’ exchange (> 40 EU students to Japan, 10 EM students in 3 years)
  • 15. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.fr Excellent scientific activities and opportunities for EU students:Consortium F G IMunich (D)Torino (I)Rennes1 (F)Coordinator
  • 16. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium But : F G I Exclusively European Master Students go to Japan (essentially for the Master thesis project)Munich (D) no Japanese Master Students participate in our EMMC Main obstacle:Torino (I) Japanese Master Students need a Japanese Diploma to enter industry etc....Rennes1 (F) Huge administrative task:Coordinator Common diploma with Japanese Universities
  • 17. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium F G I 3rd example: ETH-Zürich (joint venture with PSI) - PSI is running neutron and synchrotron facilitiesMunich (D) - scientific excellence - long lasting relations with staffTorino (I) - PSI regularly takes ca. 5 EM students for master thesis AND PhD thesis projects (also in future)Rennes1 (F)Coordinator
  • 18. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium EM2 framework implies new opportunities: F G IMunich (D) via the EM Joint Doctorate Programme via the implication of 3rd country partners asTorino (I) full partnersRennes1 (F)Coordinator
  • 19. European Master in Materials Science EM1: 2007-2010 Exploring Large Scale Facilities EM2: 2010-2013 website: http://mamaself.univ-rennes1.frConsortium EM reputation as a brand worldwide: F G IMunich (D)  EM stands today for European excellence in the field of higher education not only in Japan and in IndiaTorino (I)  EM is an important brand helping to approach towards common curricula between EU and non-EU institutionsRennes1 (F)Coordinator
  • 20. Special problems encountered:Future developpment of EMMC:• Develop an international network of excellence as a platform of teaching/research/R&D between university, research centres and industry• Attractive also for students without EM grant• Towards common diploma (multiple or joint)Opportunities given under the EM2 framework shouldsignificantly help to overcome these difficulties
