(Requirements for participation in the competition)

The following individuals may file an application to participate in the competition for admission to a Doctorate Course: Italians or foreign citizens or individuals with dual citizenship that possess a degree attained as a result of the regulations pursuant to Ministerial Decree no. 509 of 3.11.1999 or a specialized degree attained in compliance with Ministerial Decree no. 509 of 3.11.1999 or a Master’s Degree attained in compliance with Ministerial Decree no. 270 of 22.10.2004 or an analogous academic degree attained abroad and which is comparable to the Italian degree in terms of duration and content in addition to being recognized in advance by the academic authorities of competence.

If the foreign degree has been declared equivalent to the Italian degree, the applicants must specify the Italian university and the date of the rectorial decree which declares the equivalency of the degree.
On the other hand – and if the foreign degree has not yet been declared equivalent to the Italian degree – the applicants must file an explicit request for attaining this recognition of equivalence within the application for participation in the competition; in addition, they must present all documents that may be necessary for the Faculty Committee of the selected Doctoral Course to deliberate with regards to the recognition of the foreign academic degree and for the sole purposes of admission to this doctorate.
Individuals who have not attained a degree at the time of the deadline for the competition registration may also file an application for participation in the competition for admission; following an assessment on the part of the review committees, potential admission to Doctoral Courses on the part of applicants which have not attained a degree at the time of the deadline for the competition registration will be assigned “subject to verification”.
The latter condition will only be waived if the degree certificate is sent to the Research School by and not later than the final deadline of 23.12.2009.

In order to promote interaction and integration between university research and the growth and innovation of companies and external institutions, the Doctoral School of the Politecnico di Milano may stipulate specific agreements in order to create Doctoral Courses in partnership with companies and external institutions (Executive PhD).

The Executive PhD program has been designed for the purposes of:

  • solving research problems that are of interest to companies and external institutions;
  • developing knowledge for the enrichment, growth and innovation of companies and external institutions;
  • offering professional growth paths for brilliant and motivated employees, thereby increasing the staff retention capacities of companies and external institutions.

The Executive PhD program requires a structured commitment lasting roughly four years.

The educational objectives and research activities will be established in agreement between the company/institution employing the winning applicant and the Doctoral School. The specific activities and conditions relative to the Executive PhD program can be consulted on the page, “The Doctoral programs offered by Politecnico di Milano” at the website of the Doctoral School at the time of stipulation of each partnership agreement.

An employee of a company or external institution that is admitted into the research doctoral course but who does not attain a period of leave from his/her company or external institution in order to complete the doctoral programme must register with the doctoral programme for which a specific Executive PhD agreement has been stipulated between the Doctoral School and the company or external institution in question (as specified in Article 8 below) and is not qualified to receive the scholarship disbursed by the Politecnico di Milano (as specified in Article 9 below).

Art. 8

Art. 9
(Scholarships)

Scholarships disbursed by the Politecnico di Milano have a maximum duration of three years and are confirmed on an annual basis following a resolution for approval for the subsequent year on the part of the Faculty Committees of the individual Doctorate Courses. The basic amount of the scholarship is equal to € 13,638.47 per year, gross of any social security charges, in addition to any potential increases provided for under law. With regards to scholarships funded by Ministerial funds (i.e. not through agreements with external institutions), the scholarship amount may be supplemented by the Department of reference of the Doctorate, in accordance with that declared in the description brochures of the scholarships that are available at the page

http://www.polimi.it/dottorato/eng/ammissione_borse/fr_ammissione_borse.htm

In addition, the basic amount of the scholarship will be increased by 50% in proportion and in relation to the allowed periods of stay (with a duration of more than one month) within foreign universities or research institutions, as authorized by the Faculty Committee of the Doctoral Course.

The amount of taxes and fees may be adjusted on an annual basis.
Applicants receiving research compensation or salaries from national or foreign institutions may not combine these amounts with the scholarship for participation in the research doctorate.

Scholarship for participation in research doctorates are subject to the provisions relative to tax benefits pursuant to Article 4 of Law no. 476 of 13.08.1984 and subsequent regulatory provisions.

Scholarships may not be combined with other scholarships, regardless of the reason for their conferral, with the exception of those disbursed by national or foreign institutions for the integration of training or research activities by means of stays abroad.

Applicants who have received a scholarship for even just one year may not apply for the scholarship a second time.

A public employee accepted into the research doctoral course with a scholarship must be approved for a leave of absence in order to receive the scholarship and, at the time of registration, must deliver the relative documentation certifying the attainment of this leave of absence. On the other hand, if the applicant has not received a scholarship and attains a leave of absence, he/she will continue to receive the social security and retirement contributions from the public administration with which he/she was employed.

An employee of a company or private entity accepted into the research doctoral course with a scholarship must be approved for a leave of absence in order to receive the scholarship and, at the time of registration, must deliver the relative documentation certifying the attainment of this leave of absence. On the other hand, if the applicant has not received a leave of absence from the company or private entity, he/she does not retain the right to receive a scholarship: in this case, the implementation of the doctorate must be structured as a program in partnership with the company or private entity by stipulating a specific Executive PhD agreement (Article 7).
