With the Directorial Decree of 29 July 2016, No. 1540, the MUR, formerly MIUR, began the implementation of the measures in support of human capital provided for in the NOP on Research and Innovation 2014-2020 - Axis I - Investment in Human Capital - Action I.1 Innovative Industrial Doctorates.
The action is part of the National Research Programme 2015-2020 and involves the funding of three-year PhD scholarships co-funded by the European Social Fund (FSE), in addition to those already funded by Universities.

The Call is intended for state and non-state Universities recognized by MUR and based in the less developed regions (Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Puglia and Sicily) and transition regions (Abruzzo, Molise and Sardinia). This action allows the Universities of the eight regions covered by the Programme to increase the attractiveness of their doctoral programmes in collaboration with international leading companies and institutions.
This first action aims at testing a new form of cooperation with the business world and takes into consideration the development trajectories identified by the Government in the National Smart Specialization Strategy 2014-2020.

The novelty of this implementation process, strongly desired by MUR and shared with the European Commission's technical expert groups, lies in the use of the so-called standard costs for the reporting of the funded operations, which will allow significant savings in management costs for the stakeholders involved and will be used by many regions for the implementation of similar measures.

To date, 147 Innovative Industrial PhD Scholarships have been awarded for a total of about 12.5 million euro.

A total of 109 PhD scholarships have been awarded to Universities in the less developed regions and 38 PhD scholarships have been awarded to Universities from transition regions. In terms of beneficiaries, there has been a higher percentage of applications from the female population (59%) compared to the male population (41%).

The activities related to the implementation of the projects are to be completed by 30 September 2020. The deadline for the submission of the final reports is 30 November 2020.
