Welcome to the EM3E project web site

Visit to the “Pic du Midi”

On the 6th December of 2019, the 3rd edition EM3E-4SW Masters Students had the opportunity to visit the observatory of the Pic du Midi de Bigorre, in the Hautes-Pyrénéess located at 2,878 meters above sea level.
Richard Müller, astrophysicist and researcher shared with them his boundless passion for the sun. Indeed, Richar Muller has been at the observatory for over thirty years! This visit allowed the students to know the secrets of the Bernard Lyot Telescope, the largest optical telescope in Metropolitan France with 2 meters of diameter.

An interesting and enjoyable day!

EMS Summer School 2019


Our first-year students Nadin Al-Jariry and Dharmjeet Madhav and our second-year student Ignacio Hegoburu were awarded grants from the European Membrane Society (EMS) for attending the EMS Summer School 2019, held from June 23 to 28, 2019 at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland, United Kingdom). The EM3E-4SW team sends its warm thanks to the EMS for this special support and for the opportunity given to the three students to take part in this event focused on "Membranes for a Sustainable Future".

EM3E-4SW, Erasmus Mundus Master in Membrane Engineering for a Sustainable World

The Erasmus Mundus Master in Membrane Engineering for a Sustainable World, EM3E-4SW (earlier EM3E), offers an advanced educational programme related to membrane science and engineering at the interface between material science and chemical engineering and focused on specific applicative fields.

The master was born in 2010. In that year, it was labelled by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Master for the period 2011-2017. In 2016, the European Commission renewed the label under the Erasmus+ programme and confirmed the excellence of the programme.

The master involves 6 High Education Institutions of 5 European countries: University of Twente (Netherlands), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal), Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain), University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (Czech Republic), Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France) and Université de Montpellier (France, coordinating organisation). Associated partners are the Università della Calabria (Italy) and the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium).

The pedagogical project of Master comes from the close collaboration between partners through the European Research Network of Excellence NanoMemPro (EU-FP6) started in 2004.

* Erasmus+ programme, Erasmus Mundus scheme, is an educational programme launched by the European Commission to promote the cooperation and mobility of higher education. It is a unique opportunity to offer attractive scholarships to non-European and European students by placing emphasis on the diversity of the students’ origin.







The European Membrane House and the European Membrane Society support the creation of the Master EM3E-4SW.
