The European ASC Master's Course is a two year (4 semesters, 30 ECTS each) Master's programme including a mobility period within the ASC network. It has been jointly designed and is operated by 5 European universities since 2007: University Lille, Alma Mater of Bologna, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, University of Leipzig and University of Helsinki. The ASC master’s course is financed by the Erasmus Mundus programme (EMJMD) of the European Union.
In the framework of the ASC Master course Advances Spectroscopy in Chemistry the ASC Winter School will give students the opportunity to meet altogether in the same place once a year. First-year students will therefore meet all second-year students, as well as former ASC students who are now doing a Ph.D. or have found a job. It will also be the moment for first year students to network with alumni and external guests from industry or with invited professors from the consortium.
The Steering Committee of the Utrecht Network has approved the ASC Winter School as a “Utrecht Network School”.
