All candidates, unless explicitly renounced, compete for scholarships on open topics (if available).
All grants financed by PNRR funds are linked to the execution of a specific research topic.

The scholarships with predefined research topic are associated to particular research topics for which specific skills are required. Those applicants interested in one or more scholarships shall carefully verify which the field of research and the competences are required, as specified in the scholarship descriptive sheet and contact the relevant scientific referee.

The choice of the scholarship (or to waive the right to receive any) shall be made via Apply from 5 days before the beginning of the interviews for the selected PhD programme, up to 12.00 pm (midday - CET) of the day before the beginning of the interview session.
