  • International development (study trips, visiting professors, ...);
  • Internship scholarships abroad (outgoing mobility);
  • Educational innovation (materials, educational equipment, etc.).

Incoming scholarships for foreign students enrolled in these Masters (incoming mobility) will also be awarded.
