The main goal of the ECT+ EMJMD programme is the formation of post-graduates in the knowledge developed in toxicology, ecotoxicology and chemistry for generating high-level technologists and scientists devoted to the scientifically based protection of the environment. By addressing emerging One-Health concepts and paradigms, the programme will provide students the scientific basis required for covering the goals of the new European policies. In its entirety, ECT+ EMJMD faces up to key scientific and technological challenges recognised as a priority by the European institutions, and combines a fully innovative scientific approach with the direct application of the results for protecting human health and the environment.
