EURON partners aim to share expertise, knowledge and infrastructure to offer Master and PhD students a unique chance to broaden their research competencies and by stimulating mobility. The scientific collaboration between partner universities is evidenced by joint publications and joint or double PhD degrees. For more details, please visit http://www.euronschool.eu.
EURON-USJP Collaboration: Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
Prof. K. Ranil D. De Silva, Director, World Class University Project (WCUP) has been successful in obtaining Associate Partner status to the Faculty of Medical Sciences, USJP, Sri Lanka; in which Japan and Korea remain as the only additional countries from Asia that were able to attain the mentioned status, through signing of MoU between EURON and USJP which was held in December 2013 and signed by Prof. Harry W. Steinbusch, The Director, EURON, Maastricht University and Dr N.L.A.

Ranil D. De Silva, Director, WCUP.
Signing of MoU opens new horizons for Sri Lankan graduates including migrated Sri Lankan students who have completed their first degrees (in the field of medicine, science & engineering) in foreign universities to obtain their Double Doctoral degree in the field of Neuroscience from two universities in the same period of time.
This PhD programme will be freebie for the eligible candidates and offer them to carry out their part of the research activities in a European University of his/ her choice.
Prof. Harry W. Steinbusch, Director, EURON visits to IBRO-APRC Colombo School
