Students will be part of pure/applied experimental research projects in which they will take advantange of collaborations with both public and private international research institutions.

 

Research training activities compliant with the Doctoral programme's learning outcomes

 

The programme is expected to provide students with high-level knowledge across a number of specific topics, as well as multidisciplinary skills that will facilitate the development of a novel body of advanced theory and methods for conservation, management, and understanding of common goods from a cultural, environmental, and juridical perspective. Both curricula will involve:

- First year: Three interdisciplinary seminars attended by all students and focused on topics bridging environmental, cultural, and juridical themes. The courses will be planned by the Doctoral Committee and will be held by world-leading international scholars, staff of the University of Bologna, and renown professionals employed by relevant Institutions and Enterprises. Three additional seminars specifically centered on the chosen research topics that can be attended at other Campuses or Universities, provided approval is granted by the Doctoral Committee.

- Second year: Three interdisciplinary seminars attended by all students and focused on topics bridging environmental, cultural, and juridical themes. The courses will be planned by the Doctoral Committee and will be held by world-leading international scholars, staff of the University of Bologna, and renown professionals employed by relevant Institutions and Enterprises. Three additional seminars specifically centered on the chosen research topics that can be attended at other Campuses or Universities, providing approval by the Doctoral Committee.

- Third year: Advanced Summer/Winter School aimed at completing topics introduced in Year 2. A course focused on national and international funding schemes, international mobility schemes, project writing and general research skills. Annual monitoring of the progress of each doctoral candidate is also envisaged through presentations to be held at the end of each year at the presence of tutors, the Doctoral Committee, and prominent academics and professionals.
