MARES is a Joint Doctoral Programme on Marine Ecosystem Health & Conservation funded through Erasmus Mundus. The programme is offered by a consortium of 24 partners originating from 14 different countries. MARES focus on six scientific and applied fields, all dealing with the effects of the impact of humans on the natural marine environment.
The MARES doctoral programme defines a common foundation upon which all doctoral candidates must build, regardless of the chosen doctoral subject or involved partners. This common foundation can be summarized as :
The last call for applications took place in 2014. No new MARES scholarships will be offered in the nearby future.
MARES although aims to attract PhD candidates without a MARES Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate fellowship and is open to accept other Doctoral Candidates who have secured a grant from other sources. This can be in one of the remaining PhD subjects which were evaluated non-eligible for EM funding or in cooporation with the promoter of a certain doctoral subject.
We are very proud to announce that MARES researchers from the Second Edition are graduating between September 2015 & January 2016.
