The mandatory mobility component is justified by the inherent multidisciplinary/international character of the ARCHMAT course providing the added value of benefiting from the differential expertise in multi-faceted Archaeometry aspects (both in terms of range of advanced instrumental facilities and of breadth of field case studies) that can be found at each of the different Partners and Associated member institutions

Moreover, the mobility component of the Course involving one semester at each of the three ARCHMAT core institutions (Portugal, Greece and Italy) with the option of carrying master thesis work in one of the academic associated members from Italy, France, Morocco, Spain and Brazil and non academic associated members, in Portugal, Vatican state, and Greece within Scientific Conservation Laboratories of world renowned Museums will provide students with a truly European and wide ranging full immersion into a scientific as well as profoundly cultural experience

The field component of the teaching modules in the first three semesters (Theoretical, Practical and Field Seminars on Archaeometry Case Studies I, II, and III) will include the option of internships at Scientific laboratories of Museums in Portugal (IMC), Italy (MV) and Greece (MA) from associated partners according to availability as decided by the ARCHMAT
