Programme

The MMRES is a unique, one-of-a-kind programme. The bulk of the curriculum (more than 60%) is spent on experimental research in the laboratory and the nature of that research is highly multidisciplinary. Work is carried out in two different disciplines, in two of the participating centres, and under the supervision of leading national and international researchers.

In addition to a solid research experience, the programme also offers training in transversal skills such as statistics & data analysis, responsible research, and science communication. These provide MMRES students with a holistic view of the challenges that come with a research career. The Seminars on Advanced Research feature lecturers and invited speakers from the world's leading research centres and add to the multidisciplinary nature of the programme. They help prepare students to be successful in scientific PhD programmes at even the most demanding institutions.

Research Experience

Throughout the MMRES you will dedicate a total of eight months of the programme to developing your own research in some of the best laboratories in Europe, alongside renowned scientists.
