Tech4Culture fellows will develop their individual research project with the guidance of Supervisor(s) appointed by the Scientific Board.
The scientific training necessary to carry out excellent research, while enhancing career prospect after the PhD, encompasses different kind of training: formal training (classes and seminars), training through research, training through exposure to the non-academic sector, transferable skills training.
In particular, the PhD Programme offers:
Basic Training: mandatory classes and seminars offered by the Scientific Board at the beginning of the first year of fellowship.
This training aims at uniform fellows’ knowledge, given them fundamental tools to start work on their project, while preparing them to work in an interdisciplinary environment.
Specific Scientific Training: this training is tailored on fellow’s needs and is made up of two kind of training.
Formal training: fellows may attend courses, seminars, summer or winter schools offered by the University of Torino or other institutions to gain specific knowledge and skills relevant to the implementation of their research project (i.e. advanced courses, courses on methods and techniques).
Training through research: knowledge and competences gained by working in close relationship with supervisors, who provide one-at-one training and guidance, research groups and colleagues at the Hosting Departments.
Short scientific visits: at academic international institutions (usually from one week to one month).
Secondment: 10 months at non-academic partner organizations (Italian or international). Institutions are identified by fellows and supervisors according to fellows’ training needs, interests, and research projects. A non-academic tutor is appointed to guide the fellow while in secondment.
The PhD Programme also provides transferable skill training. See the dedicated page.
