In total, 116 International Masters applied for the “Erasmus Mundus” label and only 38 were selected during the annual Erasmus+ call launched by the European Commission this year.

It is therefore a very good result for the University of Bordeaux that now counts five Erasmus Mundus International Masters: Neurasmus (renewal in 2016), WINTOUR (new label in 2015) and now IPCV (new label in 2017), MER (renewal in 2017) and FAME (renewal in 2017).

The “Erasmus Mundus” program aims to reinforce the attractiveness of European higher education and student employability by supporting programs of excellence at Master level and by offering scholarships to the best students in the world.

Projects are financed for three consecutive cohorts of students as well as a preparatory year with a grant of maximum 4 million euros. The endowment finances scholarships and operating costs linked to the program (staff costs, missions, meetings, pedagogic activities, events…). 

Erasmus Mundus 2017:

IPCV: Image Processing and Computer Vision

The University of Bordeaux is program coordinator with project directors: Aurélie Bugeau and Vincent Lepetit, Professors of computing.


Reacting to the good news, Aurélie Bugeau states: "This Erasmus Mundus label rewards 4 years of work during which we developed our program, extended our consortium and learned how to meet with European requirements, not only in terms of scientific education but also with regard to social and professional training".

The label will promote the reputation and visibility of this program globally and will attract highly talented international students to the University of Bordeaux.
