2 Members Institutions fully committed to Erasmus + programmes obtain certification from the European Union for the implementation of 2 Erasmus Mundus Master’s programmes. This key action of the programme enables higher education institutions from the European Union to jointly set up training courses with a high-added value.

The Erasmus Mundus FIPDes (Food Innovation and Product Design) Master's programme coordinated by AgroParisTech and the Erasmus Mundus  SERP-Chem (Surface, Electro, Radiation and Photo–Chemistry) Master’s programme coordinated by Université Paris-Sud were awarded 2 distinguished labels from the European Commission:

  • « Sucess Story » Label awarding projects with a particular impact in participating to the development of public policies, through innovative results or for its creative approach.
  • « Good Practice Example » Label awarding the management quality of the projects.

According to the European Commission, these 2 labels honor masters that are a source of inspiration for others. These labels are very selective. As a matter of fact, only 14 masters among 138 were awarded these 2 labels and 26 were awarded the "Good practice example" label. They highlight the excellence of these 2 masters and will increase their visibility and attractiveness on the international stage. Through these labels, the European Commission recognizes the work carried out by the 2 teams in charge of the Master’s programmes and their partners.

Master FIPDes


Created in 2011, FIPDes is an innovative training programme in Food and Product Design. Its purpose is to face the global challenges of Food Innovation from design to consumption and from raw materials to packed products. The programme is jointly implemented by 4 European Universities: AgroParisTech/Université Paris-Saclay (France), Dublin Institute of Technology (Irlande), Lund University (Sweden) and University of Naples Federico 2 (Italy). Since its beginning, the Master FIPDes has awarded 103 degrees to students from 50 different countries.


Master SERP-Chem coordinated by Université Paris-Sud 


The SEPR-Chem Master will celebrate its tenth anniversary this year. It has awarded 143 degrees to students from 43 different countries. Since September 2017, it has entered a new phase with the launch of the SERP + Master’s programme. It is designed for students from all over the world, offering a wide range of studies on Chemistry and Physychochemistry of materials, enabling students to work on an international level in various fields such as nanoscience, nanomedicine, renewable energies or innovative materials. The SERP + Master’s programme is coordinated by Université Paris-Sud/Université Paris-Saclay in association with 3 European Universities: Univesity of Genova (Italy), Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan (Poland) and University of Porto.

Université Paris-Saclay congratulates the 2 teams of AgroParisTech and Université Paris-Sud committed in these exceptional Master’s programmes. They are in line with the ambition of Université Paris-Saclay to set up International Training in order to attract new International Students as well as enable students from Université Paris-Saclay to internationalize their curriculum. The Office of European Affairs of Université Paris-Saclay is going to continue promoting Erasmus + programmes, in cooperation with the offices of European Affairs of its Members Institutions, in order to foster the development of new Erasmus Mundus Master’s programmes along with development of teaching innovation.
