Updated on December 10, 2020

Each year Sapienza determines the amount of the operating fund, including the 10% increase provided for by DM 45/2013 as a budget for research activities in Italy and abroad for PhD students from the second year onwards, to be used for activities aimed at the proper functioning of the PhD programme itself.

The operating fund can be used for the following expenditure items:

  • Mobility of PhD students  
  • Reimbursement of expenses for external commission members 
  • Conferences and seminars 
  • Inventory material necessary for PhD activities 
  • Consumable materials
  • Postage and consumables for competitive exams 
  • Information and educational materials and/or services 

The PhD student may, via the coordinator, apply to use the fund, which is managed by the Department to which the course belongs.
