Additional information

The proposals  evaluation is  done by  a Commission appointed by the Teaching Board. The Commision members are  the coordinator, unless he has submitted a scholarship request, and by the tutors of the University scholarships of the previous doctoral cycle (XXXVII cycle). If the Commission deems it appropriate, in order to ensure a correct evaluation of the proposals, it will be able to make use of the support of experts in the proposed topics and also prepare interviews with the referents.

The tutors of the second previous cycle (XXXVI) are considered as supplementary members and, if necessary, are summoned on the basis of their skills with respect to the themes of the proposals to be evaluated. For the scientific evaluation of the proposals that are absolutely not attributable to the competences of the commission, the coordinator can ask for the opinion of a competent external auditor.

The proposals are assessed on the basis of the scientific qualification of the tutor , the scientific quality of the proposal, the feasibility, the availability of adequate budget for the research activityof the Ph.D. student.

In the evaluation of the tutor are also considered:

  • The tutor's evaluations by his / her previous PhD students
  • Compliance with the types of doctorate (co-tutoring, European) declared in any previous applications for the assignment of University scholarships starting from the XXXV cycle
  • The carrying out of at least three months of internships abroad of any previous doctoral students
  • The production by any previous doctoral students of at least one printed job in the extendable three-year period, a discretion of the commission, until the end of the doctorate for a justified reason.

In case of a negative opinion by the PhD students and / or non-compliance with the other items, a penalty is applied to the evaluation of the proposal..

The proposal form is completed online on the doctoral website.

The average of the evaluations represents the score of each proposal, on which the ranking is made. At the end of the proposals evaluation, the Commission draws up the final ranking of the proposals, which is made public.
