Research doctorates

The Phd School brings together the doctoral programmes running in the University in order to better coordinate the policies of recruitment, management and awarding of the degree.

It organizes interdisciplinary teaching open to all doctoral students, encourages collaboration with institutions and companies involved in research sectors and encourages the international mobility of doctoral students for study and research purposes.
