PhD+ seminar series

The Contamination Lab is a project co-financed by Italian MIUR and developed by the Technology Transfer Office of the University of Pisa. The IMT Scuola Alti Studi Lucca, Scuola Normale Superiore and Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa collaborate to this project too. The activities will be carried out together with other local authorities (chambers of commerce, technological poles, large companies). CLAB is a physical and virtual meeting and contamination space , with the aim of training students and researchers in entrepreneurial culture (self-entrepreneurship) and contribute to the creation of startups. The promoters of innovative ideas are accompanied step-by-step to the creation of a business thanks to the support of experts.

Headquarters of the Contamination Lab is the ex Benedictine complex, Piazza San Paolo Ripa D’Arno 16 – Pisa. The CLab offers an interesting training course called PhD+ whose goal is to train and stimulate the Research Valorization, innovation and entrepreneurial mindset” of our PhD students.

Mauriana Pesaresi seminar series (Web site)

Lecturer: PhDs and professors

       Coordinator: Salvatore Citraro, PhD student

Period: January 2021 — May 2021

This is the historical series of seminars attended and designed by our PhD students. The idea is to have a weekly lunch time meeting where PhD students can present their current activities or their ideas for their future thesis to each other, creating connections and opportunities for suggestions and collaborations among them and among professors and researchers that also attend often those presentations.

In order to complete this cycle of meetings, each of the students has to attend 70-80% of seminars (depending on how many participants are enrolled) and held one of them. Talks should last between 30 and 45 minutes, which leaves enough time for discussion.

For grabbing an idea on this series of seminars you can look at the last year course page.
