Scholarships

The Lagrange Project grants every year a number of research scholarships.

Such scholarships are intended for residents of Piedmont and Aosta Valley.
Applicants need to hold an undergraduate or post-graduate university degree, and to submit a research project on the organization of complex systems (e.g. new materials, process innovation, mechanical technologies, biotechnologies, etc).
The project work is usually carried out within a company with the support and scientific supervision of researchers belonging to the University of Turin, the Polytechnic University of Turin or another publicly-funded research center.

Applied research scholarships

Between 2003 and 2010, the Lagrange Project opened ten calls for research fellowships and five Lagrange Start Up calls.
In 2011 a more effective scholarship was introduced: the “Lagrange Applied Research Scholarship”.
Building on the success of previous experiences, it aimed to make the essential bridge between academic research and businesses system easier and more effective.
This was obtained by dividing the scholarships along three main axes (or “Asse” in Italian), dubbed A, B, and C:

– “Asse A” scholarships are open to high school graduates and above. Applicants are required to submit research projects in the field of complex systems framework of the study, with particular attention to the management and the organization of complex systems (new materials, innovation of processes, mechanical technologies, biotechnologies, policy making, public health, etc.). The project work is usually carried out within a company with the support and scientific supervision of researchers belonging to the University of Turin, the Polytechnic University of Turin or another publicly-funded research center.

– “Asse B” scholarships are open to university graduates and above. Applicants are required to submit projects focusing on Big Data “systems”. As for “Asse A” scholarships, also these projects are normally carried out in a company with the support and the scientific supervision of ISI Foundation.

– “Asse C” scholarships open to university graduates and above. Applications are required to submit projects focusing on Data Science and Digital epidemiology with a multidisciplinary approach between science, technology and public health. Such projects will be carried out at ISI Foundation.

For all scholarships, candidates must be residents of Piedmont or Aosta Valley at the time of start of the scholarship.
