INOS Welcomed the 8th Cohort of The Erasmus Mundus TROPIMUNDO

TROPIMUNDO is an EC-funded and excellence-labelled Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Tropical Biodiversity and Ecosystems. It aims to bring together experts with long-standing worldwide expertise in tropical coastal ecosystems. It is the first Master Science program that integrates the knowledge and skills related to four adjacent interlinked tropical ecosystems under threat (tropical rainforests and woodlands, wetlands, – both terrestrial and coastal such as mangrove forests, seagrass beds and coral reefs).

TROPIMUNDO is unique in incorporating a 2nd semester (with theoretical courses and a significant field course) in the tropics in Peru (UCP), Cameroon (UDsch), Malaysia (UMT) or Australia (UQ). Furthermore TROPIMUNDO brings together European expert higher education institutes, with long-standing worldwide expertise in tropical rainforests and woodlands and in coastal ecosystems in Belgium (ULB, VUB), France (UPMC, MNHN) and Italy (UNIFI). They integrate world class scientific education and research expertise on the aforementioned tropical ecosystems and experience in designing and teaching in international MSc programs.
