Annual report

36th cycle
All PhD students were deemed worthy of being admitted to the second year in the resolution of the PhD Professors Board dated 18 October 2021. They all presented to their tutors at least one scientific work of a publishable level, connected with the thesis project. They also participated with great diligence in the activities provided for in the planned training offer, which was provided both online and in presence mode, due to the health situation linked to Covid-19. It should be noted that half of the PhD students have submitted an extension request pursuant to Article 33, paragraphs 2bis and 2ter of the Law of 21 May 2021, n. 69.

35th cycle
All PhD students were considered deserving to be admitted to the third year in the resolution of the PhD Professors Board dated 18 October 2021. The opinion of the Board was largely positive for all six PhD students: they have regularly followed the activity of courses and seminars scheduled for the cycle. All the PhD students have presented to their tutors at least one publishable level work, connected with the thesis project, for the passage of the year. They also participated in congresses and workshops, also as speakers, as well as held lectures and seminars. Many of these activities were carried out online, due to the health situation linked to Covid-19. The
same reason must be attributed to the fact that in only one case a short period of research has already been carried out abroad. The other PhD students of the 35th cycle have planned their research travels and will leave in the coming months. The research activity of the second-year PhD students has given some scientific publications, all directly or indirectly attributable to the PhD. It should be noted that all PhD students of the 35th cycle have submitted an extension request pursuant to Article 33, paragraphs 2bis and 2ter of the Law of 21 May 2021, n. 69

34th cycle
The PhD students admitted to the 34th cycle, due to a suspension from mid-January to mid-October 2019, have an eight-month postponement of theentire doctoral cycle. For this reason, the transition to the third year tookplace in July 2021 (resolution of the PhD Professors Board of 2 July 2021).All PhD students were deemed worthy of admission to the following year, to the full satisfaction of the Board. The deliveries of the final theses are expected between September 2022 and January 2023 due to additional extensions (from 2 to 6 months) requested by the PhD students because of the provisions of the law introduced in the course of 2021 and the first months of 2022 linked to the pandemic state (DL no. 69/2021; Legislative Decrete no. 4/2022). The PhD students of the 35th cycle participated in congresses and workshops, also as speakers, as well as held lectures and seminars. They also achieve a good number of publications.
