In the event of an equal total score of two or more applicants, preference will be given to the youngest applicant, without prejudice to the rules governing the priority principle to be applied for the awarding of the scholarships as laid down by Art. 9 of the present Call. Successful applicants who are already enrolled in another PhD programme must withdraw from the previous programme before the enrolment at the University takes place. Applicants shall be excluded if, during the kick-off meeting, the Academic Board assigns them a research project falling within the same scientific area (Settore Scientifico Disciplinare) covering the project carried out within the framework of the previous PhD programme. PhD candidates having already been granted of a scholarship for participation in a PhD programme established in Italy cannot be allowed to receive the University scholarship, even if their research project does not fall within the scientific area covering the project carried out within the framework of the previous PhD programme.
