The Lagrange Project started in 2003 and is regarded as one of the pioneering and most innovative European projects on complex systems science and data science.
It is promoted and funded by Fondazione CRT as a part of the Lagrange project. ISI Foundation holds the scientific lead. The scholarships aim to bridge the gap between academic research and industry, focusing on Data Science for Social Impact.
Our Scholars can work in a dynamic research environment with advisors with internationally recognized scientific profiles and international agencies (UNICEF, WFP, etc.)
