NB: If your wish to apply for a cotutelle mobility, you need to look for a hosting laboratory and a thesis co-director/supervisor in a partner-university.

In order to do so, ask your thesis director to provide you with information about current projects undertaken jointly with partner universities. This should help you to contact a professor willing to become your supervisor at the host university.

You should also search on the web sites of the partner universities to identify laboratories doing research on your field of study.

When you first contact a partner university with the aim of finding a host institution, it would be useful to briefly describe the HERMES project, your area of study and the type of cooperation you are hoping to achieve. You should also mention that your HERMES application requires an invitation letter from the host university, and that you must obtain the HERMES scholarship in order to proceed with the exchange
