Meeting notes

Both universities that a student has visited should be involved in supervising the thesis.

Students can give priorities for the second year, but it's we (the consortium) who decide where to place each student.

The program will have to implement the curriculum in the application more or less exactly. However, it's not the end of the world if one site fails to implement the core, since it doesn't have to be given at every site.

Core module should not be (too much overlapping with) an existing masters program.

The core module *must* be coherent across the universities.

Ind. project (15 ECTS) doesn't have to be given everywhere (though Chalmers can probably give it). Can be done at any time from the second semester.

Core courses can be spread out over the year.

If two sites have the same module, the courses should not overlap.

The warm-up should be at a single place. Probably Romania, because it's the cheapest place. It's very important to have a common gathering of all students, so it's not a good idea to have the warm-up at several places.

Chalmers should have a person keeping (daily?) contact with the employed administratives in Budapest.

Local language courses need to be offered (but not counted as part of the program).

Members of the advisory board (teaching staff, administrative staff, students, industrial partners); can be both internal and external; students elect student representative.

Only two students from each country can get a scholarship (but more paying students can be accepted).

Good [FAQ](http://www.master-optics.eu/index.php?id=10)

It turns out bilateral Erasmus agreements are not needed for the application. Chalmers will not even make any more agreements (see mail from Gustavo 2011-03-24)

Gustavo 2011-04-04:

> "Chalmers is not coordinating institution for any EMMP and it is our policy not to take that role. Chalmers is only participating institution in an EMMP consortium."

Our application is about [Action 1](http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus_mundus/programme/action1_en.php) (?)

Erasmus Mundus is not (at all) the same as ERASMUS. I think the latter is only for European students. I think the former is partly a way for Europe to attract foreign skills. ERASMUS is an exchange program that does not lead to a degree. Erasmus Mundus is a mobility program that leads to a double degree. (See mail from Gustavo 2011-03-24.)
