14 full grants, corresponding to funding of 3 years’ salary for PhD Students, are associated to this call: 3 positions will be opened at UPPA and USMB, 2 positions will be opened at UNIBS, UNITO and UNITBV, 1 position will be opened at UNIZAR and UPNA.

The complete call will be composed of two phases. In the first one, we expect PhD research topics in line with the Choral programme, involving two supervisors in the UNITA alliance. Eligibility of the projects will be ensured by the Cultural Heritage Hub. In a second step, international students will have to answer a call and apply for position on the PhD research topics resulting from the first step.
