The liberalization and regulation of network industries and infrastructures across the world creates a need for industries and public institutions to hire skilled professionals capable of understanding these processes and participating actively in their management and regulation.

The EMIN Joint Master Programme offers the opportunity to acquire expertise in the management of network industries from a global perspective that covers both economic/regulatory and technological/management issues. In these industries, teaching, training and research are typically carried out solely by focused specialists, which usually results in a skewed perspective. The purpose of this Master is to continue integrating specialists from different backgrounds and nationalities, and to make them interact in an interdisciplinary program so as to address the main problems faced by network industries in the current context of economic crisis and environmental concern. Our master students will learn the relevant engineering, economics, policy and management principles that should guide the functioning of network and infrastructure industries with a special focus on the energy and electrical power sector. Throughout the master, students will apply these skills and knowledge to solve real-life problems, since this course is dedicated to training qualified professionals.

This Master Programme is awarded jointly by some of the most prestigious European universities. First line American and Asian universities and research institutes are also part of the programme consortium.

The EMIN Joint Master Programme was awarded in 2006 the Erasmus Mundus excellence label by the European Commission. This award was renewed for another 5 years in 2010. Therefore, scholarships granted by the European Commission will be available both for EMIN students and visiting professors during the forthcoming years. The Erasmus Mundus excellence label has only been granted so far to 126 Masters and 34 doctorates in all disciplines and Universities across Europe. Comillas also coordinates the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate in Sustainable Energy Technologies and Strategies (SETS Joint Doctorate).

The Erasmus Mundus programme aims to enhance quality in higher education through scholarships and academic cooperation between Europe and the rest of the world.

Added Value

The EMIN Joint Master Programme has an advantage over existing programmes in the added value stemming from its partners’ joint expertise, the relevance of the subjects addressed, the participation of supporting industries and institutions, and the target of offering a joint degree once legal obstacles and national legislation so allow. All these advantages ensure an impact on European competitiveness in this area, and the development of cutting-edge education and collaboration between the academic and the industrial worlds. This added value of the EMIN Joint Master Programme can be summarized in the following points: international component, renowned partners, interdisciplinary approach, industry connection, experience gained in the management of this programme, and research career opportunities.

scholarship-Masters in Chemical Innovation and Regulation

 Master Course in Chemical Innovation and Regulation – EMMC-ChIR – is a MSc degree for professionals concerned with the safety and regulation of chemical substances.

Chemicals are everywhere, are an essential component of our daily lives and definitively contribute to the well-being and prosperity of our society.

However, some chemicals can severely damage our environment or health and are dangerous if not properly used. A large number of substances have been manufactured and placed on the market in Europe for many years, sometimes in very high amounts, and yet there is insufficient information on the hazards that they pose to human health and the environment.

These are some of the reasons that make a sound chemicals management and regulation so important. Policy frameworks are being implemented around the world and should be in place by year 2020. These frameworks are in accordance with the recommendations of the UN’s Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM). Among international regulations such as the US’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and Japan’s Chemical Substances Control Law (CSCL), the European REACH regulations, implemented in 2007, are the most ambitious. The REACH regulations (EC 1907/2006, REACH – Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances) are recognized internationally and have been adopted and adapted by the main trade partners of the EU such as China.

The REACH legislation allows for the gathering scientific information (registration and evaluation) and applying preventive risk management measures (authorization and restriction) of all chemicals manufactured or imported to EU. European manufacturers and importers of chemical substances are required to provide extensive information regarding all potential hazards caused by chemical substances contained in their products. This affects European and non-European companies supplying the European market and it requires an extensive amount of research from public and private research centers in order to assess the toxicity of chemical substances and to design new safer alternatives to their use.

The EMMC ChIR – Erasmus Mundus Master in Chemical Innovation and Regulation – provides professionals with all the tools and knowledge needed from the scientific, the regulatory and the economic point of view to manage the risks of chemicals responsibly and to meet responsibilities over chemical legislation worldwide. As an Erasmus Mundus project, ChIR aims to promote research and collaboration in the EHEA supporting the implementation of chemical safety regulation.
