This PhD program aims to provide talented and motivated students with in-depth research skills that will allow them to tackle relevant agricultural and environmental problems in mountain areas. Students will have the chance to join a range of training opportunities, seminars, and conferences and to work under the guidance of supervisors within international research teams.

The three-year program is highly interdisciplinary; competencies span from ecology to hydrology, from crop production to animal science, from forestry to agricultural engineering, and from plant protection to marketing. The PhD projects tackle, among others, the efficient use of natural resources, the sustainable production methods in agriculture and forestry, and the effect of climate change on natural and managed mountain ecosystems.

The Scientific Committee includes internationally renowned scientists from Italian and foreign Universities as well as from Research Centres, like Eurac Research and Limburg Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry.

The international research training and the skills developed during the doctoral program will help you meet your career aspirations, both inside and outside research institutions.
