1. Erasmus Mundus Design Measures (EMDM)

They support the design of high-level and integrated study programmes, at master level. Joint programmes are designed and delivered by an international partnership of HEIs. Additionally, they may involve other educational and/or non-educational partners with specific expertise and interest in the area of study.

Erasmus Mundus Design Measures encourage HEIs to develop new, innovative and highly integrated master programmes by facilitating the setup of such international partnerships. EMDM aim to involve EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme (previously called Programme countries), institutions, and/or thematic areas that are somehow under-represented in Erasmus Mundus.
