Educational and Capacity Building Programmes

Education and Capacity Building are important elements of the CIHEAM's mandate.

The CIHEAM offers two types of programmes: Masters Programmes and Short Specialised Courses targeted to post-graduate students, officials and professional of agri-food sectors in the Euro-Mediterranean region.

The CIHEAM's programmes are complementary to and devised in partnership with national higher education and research institutions in member countries. They are implemented in the CIHEAM's Institutes (MAIs) or other institutions in our member countries, thus contributing to student mobility.

The academic and scientific excellence of the permanent and visiting teaching staff, as well as its diversity, is one of the CIHEAM’s main assets in achieving high educational quality standards and in developing the "spirit of international cooperation", which the founders of the CIHEAM wished to promote.
