The Master is organized by the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza (IAMZ) of the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM) and the School of Agricultural and Forestry Engineering (ETSEA) of the University of Lleida (UdL).
Since its accreditation in 1969, IAMZ is one of the four Mediterranean Agronomic Institutes of CIHEAM, an international organization created in 1962 through an intergovernmental agreement of thirteen member countries of the Mediterranean area: Albania, Algeria, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey, and whose mission is to provide postgraduate training in the fields of agriculture, economy and the environment. CIHEAM develops two types of training activities: the Master programmes and the short-duration advanced specialized courses. Frequently, the programmes are jointly organized with Higher Education Institutions from the member states. At IAMZ, training is provided by guest experts, highly qualified, selected for their experience and prestige in each subject. These experts come from universities, research centres, international organizations, administrations and firms from all over the world. The CIHEAM Master of Science Degree, issued by IAMZ, is recognized by the Spanish State as equivalent to the official Master Degree of the Spanish university system (Spanish Official Gazette BOE dated 21 November 2006 and BOE dated 20 February 2007). IAMZ is registered in the Spanish Registry of Universities, Centres and Degree (RUCT) of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports.
UdL is a public university which combines a long, fruitful academic tradition with a young, dynamic structure to achieve excellent training and quality research with advanced methods. UdL-ETSEA Campus is the largest agrofood and forestry campus in Catalonia (Spain), both in number of degrees offered and in research teams. Its growth and broadening has been constant and, currently, degrees and research are being carried out with proven quality in all agricultural fields: plant, forestry and animal production, food science and technology, and biotechnology. Overall, around 200 lecturers and researchers provide training in 26 degrees to about 1700 students.
Full information on both institutions can be found in their respective websites.
The first part of the Master will take place at IAMZ, and the second part at the UdL or other universities, research centres or companies collaborating with IAMZ and UdL in this part of the programme.
