*The Erasmus Mundus Joint/Double Doctorate in Interactive and Cognitive 
Environments*(*EMJD ICE*) fourth *Call for Application *is now open, 
*with expected deadline in January 13, 2013*, offering _*6 granted PhD 

The programme give the PhD candidates the opportunity to enjoy the

*research related to computer science, electronic and telecommunication 
engineering, and industrial design*.

The attraction of the ICE doctorate is mainly referable to the chance, 
guaranteed to any wishful applicant interested in the programme, to 
acquire and to formalize the *knowledge in specific advanced domains*, 
achieved through the active participation in lectures and seminars; 
furthermore, they are constantly stimulated to be in strict touch with 
*leading research groups*that have proven experiences in research 
activities in basic disciplines necessary for the PhD course *in the 
five partner universities involved in the project (Università degli 
Studi di Genova/UniGe -- Technische Universiteit Eindhoven/TU/e -- Queen 
Mary University of London/QMUL -- Universitat Politècnica de 
Catalunya/UPC -- Technische Universitet Klagenfurt/UNIKLU*). And "last 
but not least", the ICE programme involves *actual industry/academy 
joint research activities on projects in cooperation with leading ICT 
companies*, typically under international institutional umbrellas, such 
as the European Research Frameworks. *26 partners worldwide*, coming

Aspecific provision of trainingfocused on the acquisitionof*targeted 
skills*is guaranteed by the programme. A key role is played by the 
*project supervisors*(two at least are assigned in both the hosting 
institutions), since they take care of the study progress of the PhD 
candidates and help them to improve their research capabilities.

The medium of instruction is English; nevertheless, the PhD studentswill
