The University of Torino, with the support of the European Commission and the banking foundation Compagnia di San Paolo, has launched “PhD Technology Driven Sciences: Technologies for Cultural Heritage (Tech4Culture)”, a new doctoral programme in “Heritage Sciences” specifically focused on technologies applied to Cultural Heritage. Tech4Culture is funded under the H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2016 scheme (Grant Agreement N. 754511).

Tech4Culture aims to create experts able to develop technological solutions for the restoration, the diagnostics, the use and promotion of cultural heritage, with a direct impact on both regional and national research systems.

The project pays particular attention at involving key sectors and companies in the non-academic field and at providing excellent training to PhD students for the acquisition of transferable skills.

Through two calls for application, the Doctoral Programme will attract eighteen transnational incoming early stage researchers by offering them the opportunity to carry out their own research projects, to attend a unique interdisciplinary scientific training, complementary training on soft skills, and to experience short scientific visits and secondment periods at national and international universities, research centres and in the private sector.

The First Call (2018) awarded 8 fellowships.

The present Second Call for Applications to the Tech4Culture PhD Programme offers up to 10 fellowships for transnational incoming early stage researchers. Full text of the Call for Applications, as well as the Guide for Applicants, is available at
