International programmes
Thanks to a strong network of connections and exchange programmes with prestigious international universities, Politecnico di Torino is able to offer to its students, in particular to those enrolled in PhD programmes, several opportunities for carrying out academic and research activities at international level. In the last years, the University has also invested substantially in internationalization processes, proving its ability to attract foreign students willing to improve their knowledge in the field of Architecture and Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. 

Italian-French University (UIF) publishes Vinci Call every year, in order to promote the integration of academic training and research at European level. Vinci Call provides students with: 
  • Contributions for international mobility in the framework of thesis co-tutelle agreements;
  • PhD scholarships for thesis co-tutelle agreements; 
  • Training and research period abroad. 
Detailed information about application procedures can be find here.

Politecnico di Torino signed an agreement with the China Scholarship Council (CSC). Positions covered by the said agreement are reserved to Chinese citizens receiving a CSC scholarship.

Erasmus Mundus is a cooperation and mobility programme in the field of Higher Education.

  • CoACH
CoACH- Advanced glasses, Composites And Ceramics for High growth Industries European Training Network (ETN). Politecnico di Torino coordinates the CoACH project, funded by the European Commission through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks action (MSCA-ITNs). 
CoACH provides career development and training opportunities for researchers who are in their first 4 years of research career in both the public and private sectors. CoACH is an inter/multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial programme as it includes 5 academic partners and 10 private companies, from seven different European countries
CoACH will promote international excellence in glass, ceramic and composite science and technology, modelling, design, characterization and commercialization of advanced glass, ceramic and composite based products. The 15 recruited PhD researchers will benefit from direct access to state-of-the-art research equipment and expertise. They will be trained in creative, independent problem solving under time and resource constraints typical of a scientific and technical working environment in continuous contact with the industrial world.   
Fellowship gross amount: living allowance (3110 €/month, country correction factor to be applied) + mobility and family allowance (600 or 1100 €/month depending on the researcher’s family situation).
