Erasmus Intensive Programs

An Intensive Program (IP) is a short program of study which brings together students and staff from higher education institutions of at least three participating countries. It can last from 2 weeks or 10 continuous full days to 6 weeks of subject related work.

An IP aims to:

  • Encourage efficient and multinational teaching of specialist topics which might otherwise not be taught at all, or only in a very restricted number of higher education institutions.
  • Enable students and teachers to work together in multinational groups and so benefit from special learning and teaching conditions not available in a single institution, and to gain new perspectives on the topic being studied.
  • Allow members of the teaching staff to exchange views on teaching content and new curricula approaches and to test teaching methods in an international classroom environment.

What does an Intensive Program involve?

  • It may not consist of research activities or conferences, but should provide something new in terms of learning opportunities, skills development, access to information, etc. for the participating teachers and students.
  • An Intensive Program can be a one-off activity or repeated over a limited number of years (maximum duration of funding three consecutive years, annual application).

What criteria must an Intensive Program respect?

  • The consortium involves at least 3 participating institutions from 3 different countries. At least one participating institution must be from a Member State of the European Union.
  • The planned location of the Intensive Program is in a country which is eligible to participate in the Lifelong Learning Program.
  • The number of students travelling from countries other than the country where the Intensive Program takes place must be minimum 10.
  • The activity plan should include at least 10 continuous working days of subject-related work.
  • The Intensive Program must take place without interruption and subject-related work days can only be separated by weekends.

Intensive Program in which the University of Turin is involved as Coordinator Partner: Design, synthesis and validation of Imaging Probes.
It is an Intensive Program devoted to develop an indepth and an up-to-date training covering the design, synthesis and characterization of imaging probes including their functionalization and labelling for different imaging modalities. More details are available in this section.

Intensive Programme in which the University of Turin is involved as a Partner:

• PET Imaging (Saclay, France)
The aim of this theoretical and practical integrated course is to introduce participants to small animals PET imaging technology and its applications in oncology and brain imaging

• Optical Imaging (Heraklion, Greece)
The aim of this intensive program is to provide a multidisciplinary, theoretical and practical-experimental training in optical imaging methods and demonstrate the importance of such approaches to the study of biological phenomena and the applications in basic biological research and the translation to healthcare.

• NeuroMRI (Antwerp, Belgium)
The aim of this integrated theoretical and practical course is i) to obtain insight in the basic principles of the MRI technique and ii) to know the different image modalities to visualize brain

• FELASA – Laboratory animal science (Antwerp, Belgium)
The aim of this integrated theoretical and practical course is to teach students – within the frame of European legislation regarding Laboratory Animals – how to handle and use laboratory animals in biomedical research via addressing topics such as: legislation, ethics, basic biology including transgenesis and species-specific behavior, husbandry, hygiene, health management, anesthesia, analgesia, euthanasia, 3 R’s.

• Molecular Imaging: industrial context, state of the art, multimodal imaging (Saclay, France)
The aim of this course is to up date students' knowledge on the fast evolving field of Molecular Imaging with a particular emphasis on the MI medical needs and industrial perspectives.
