ERASMUS+ Mobility Study Programme for Ph.D. Students Call for Applications

As part of the EU Erasmus+ mobility program, TTPU invites Ph.D. students to apply to participate in a mobility program for 9 months at Politecnico di Torino within the Erasmus+ inter-institutional agreement between both universities.  The purpose of the study visit is to strengthen the research of your PhD thesis, e.g. to open access to new research methodology and theoretical developments relevant to your research, or to work with faculty members abroad with expertise in your field of research, among others.

The scholarship will be awarded on a competitive basis for nine months. Funds can be used toward covering travel expenses, visa and living costs while abroad.

Stays abroad can take place in the first and second semesters of 2024/2025, but stays must end prior to July 31, 2024.
