Corsi e Scuole

Each year, students participate actively in the Winter School on Biotechnology held by members of the Faculty, internationally renowned researchers, and industrial researchers and managers. Courses, with final examination, covering the arguments of our three curricula are also offered. To complete their training, students are encouraged to participate to national and international Summer Schools, Workshops, Conferences, Specialist Seminars, and mandatory courses offered by UNIPG, namely:

- Courses of English @CLA Unipg (10 CFU)

- Management of research, knowledge of research systems and funding systems (1 CFU)

- Exploitation of research and intellectual property (6 CFU)
