    EDIM is a great opportunity to learn from diverse cultures, grow in double academic areas, contribute to each other and be recognized in a large network. It is a unique doctoral program with its multi-disciplinary research topics and quarterly workshops. I love EDIM!

    One of the great advantages of this program is the EDIM workshops, where you can develop and enhance your academic and professional networking. The EDIM workshops need to be considered as a best practice by other Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate programs
