FEM International Doctoral Programme

FEM International Doctoral Programme coordinates all training activities of the Research and Innovation Centre (CRI) of the Fondazione Edmund Mach (FEM). Starting from the International PhD Initiative ‘Genomics and Molecular Physiology of Fruits’ (GMPF) launched in 2009 (focusing on genomics, genetics, metabolomics, and molecular physiology of fruit crops), the doctoral programme has subsequently expanded its activities to all FEM research interests. Currently, it  promotes training activities on food and nutrition sciences, computational biology, environmental science, climatology, and veterinary medicine, guiding principles include applied research, an international working environment, last generation technologies

Each year, FEM finance PhD scholarships to outstanding international graduates to carry out research projects in its areas of interest, and to complete a PhD programme in academic and/or partner institutions. In addition, thanks to its rich network, the programme supports the international mobility of its PhD students, who are encouraged to join the activities of prestigious international institutions. In this context, students develop their academic independence and autonomy, and are ready to enter the job market of scientific research. Towards this goal, the doctoral  programme benefits from CRI’s long experience in the promotion of research activities closely related to the interests of consumers and producers.
