EPCEM course announcement
The European Postgraduate Course in Environmental Management (EPCEM) provides an advanced international training in environmental policy and management. In addition to specialist university education (at MA/MSc level), this can be an excellent preparation for the environmental professional practice.

EPCEM 2004/2005 starts in September and contains a training in knowledge and skills needed to solve environmental problems. An interdisciplinary research project and internship in one of the European countries are part of the training.
Already more than 350 participants from over 40 countries, who since 1992 have received their supplementary Masters Degree in Environmental Management, are presently working at various authorities, consultancies, environmental NGOs, and research institutes.
EPCEM is organised by universities in Amsterdam, Leiden and Wageningen (The Netherlands), Paris (France) and Debrecen (Hungary), in cooperation with other universities in Eastern and Western Europe.
To cover the course fee of 14000 Euro and living expenses, for specified target groups a limited number of grants (offered by a. o. Dutch governmental funds and the Foundation Open Society Institute) is available through EPCEM.
Deadline for application is 15 March 2004, but in consultation with the EPCEM secretariat applications may be accepted until 31 March 2000. Candidates with own financial resources or sponsoring may be accepted until 1 May 2004.
