PhD students follow two types of training courses: a specific and personalized one, based on research and individual study under the supervision of one or more tutors; the other, common to all members, based on courses and cycles of seminars.

PhD students are included in the existing working groups. The student can, according to the decisions of the Academic Board, follow internships and courses at other structures in Italy or abroad. Collaborative relationships between doctoral students are stimulated in carrying out research projects. For this purpose, regular meetings are scheduled between doctoral students and tutors aimed at exchanging practical experiences and theoretical knowledge.

Numerous agreements are in place with universities, public bodies and private offices.
