The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctoral Programme in Interactive and Cognitive Environments at University of Genova aims aims at developing and enhancing master students’ knowledge and skills in order to form a new generation of professionals able to exploit (and further enhance) cutting-edge ICT technologies to design and implement - in multi-disciplinary work teams - innovative solutions related to Doctoral objective. The programme has three major focuses, iteratively pursued during the whole progress of the candidate’s track.
The former concerns the acquisition and the formalization of knowledge in specific advanced domains, achieved through lectures and seminars. The second aims at maintaining in strict touch PhD students with leading research groups that have proven experiences in research activities in basic disciplines necessary for the PhD course in the five partner universities. The latter involves actual industry/academy joint research activities on projects in cooperation with leading ICT companies. The Programme lasts three years. During this period a mobility scheme ensures that students will spend training / research periods in at least two different higher education institutions.
The programme has three major focuses, which will be iteratively pursued during the whole progress of the candidate’s track following guidelines promoted also by the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Good Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers:
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate in Interactive and Cognitive Environments offers a complete panorama of the aspects that characterize the target professional figure:
A Doctoral Candidate Agreement will be signed with Erasmus Mundus granted Students in which monthly payments are specified (12 installments of 2.800 each as employment contract (gross salary) and of 600 as fixed contribution for laboratory-based course) together with the lump sum ( 7.500) for traveling expenses (only to Category A students).
The gross amount is not intended as an employee gross but as an employer gross. Therefore, each university, according to each national legislation, will deduct from the monthly amount both the employer's taxes and the employee's taxes. In average, an equivalent net salary will be guaranteed to all PhD candidates.The expected average net salary will be around 1.500 per month.
Each year a variable number of fellowships will be offered according to the grants provided by EACEA.
