The LEATECH project coordinated by the A3 Leather Innovation Center of the University of Lleida (Spain) under the Erasmus programme has been established to coordinate and prepare a group of Higher Educational Institutes (HEI) active in leather science to implement a full-fledged Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters programme in the leather industry.

The A3 Center-UdL together with ITECH (France), EGE University (Turkey) and CIATEC (Mexico) have agreed to combine their academic strengths for offering 120-credit leather Masters qualifying holders for high level positions in the global leather industry and its international value chain. The Masters will be conducted in English throughout the various facilities ​and will focus on innovation, circularity and sustainability.

If the project is ​eventually approved, the Erasmus ​Mundus programme would provide the funding for 60 students ​(travel, accommodation, subsistence & tuition fees) in 2023. Cotance would like to conduct a 3-question survey. Click here to take part.
