Agreement with the Collège de France

The “Collège de France”, located in Paris, is a very prestigious research institute well-regarded within the international scientific community, aimed at creating a forum for teaching and research of excellence.
It is mainly focused on historiography and philology research, as well as mathematics, physics and social sciences.
What makes the institute unique in its approach can be summarized in the phrase "knowledge in the making in every field of literature, science and the arts". The Collège’s slogan is “Non pas des vérités acquises, mais l'idée d'une recherche libre” (Maurice Merleau-Ponty).
In the framework of the collaboration agreement between the University of Trento and the Collège de France, UniTrento funds a period of study/research for its doctorate students and post doc scholars for about one month. This includes the refund of travel expenses and a contribution to the room and board expenses in one of the affiliated premises in Paris.
A selection call for a mobility scholarship is published annually (generally in March). Please check the call available at the webpage “open selection calls.
