Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience (ACN) Exchange Network

The Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience (ACN) Exchange Network is an Erasmus Mundus Action 2 Partnerships Mobility Programme. It is funded by the European Union for 4 years (2010 - 2014). It is co-ordinated by Leipzig University and it promotes mobility for graduate students, post-doctoral scholars and staff, as well as providing financia awards for exchanges in Europe and North America.

The partnership in Europe:

The partnership in North America:

Much of the current cutting-edge research in Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience is highly multidisciplinary and relies strongly on international cooperation. Some of the foremost labs in the field of auditory science are joining forces to provide a unique international training programme to students in the fields of general science, biomedicine, and biomedical engineering related to audition. Participating students have the opportunity to closely interact with experts studying the auditory system with different scopes.

The programme's aim is to support a total of 426 months of transatlantic exchange of doctoral and post-doctoral students and staff members. Students will typically spend 6 months in a partner institute across the Atlantic as part of a joint research project. Staff exchange is meant to enable the organisation of lecture series and workshops across member institutions, as well as joint research and training of technical support staff. Each year the programme makes the following available: in the EU, 11 doctoral awards, 3 post-doctoral awards, and 4 staff awards; in North America, 7 doctoral awards, 2 post-doctoral awards, and 2 staff awards. Awards include travel costs and living subsistence. The awards are given in yearly competitions.
