Until the deadline of May 27th 2016, interested PhD candidates found on the website www.phd-italents.it the companies' work offers. They were able to register on the project platform, to access all the information, and to apply for the jobs.

On the basis of the published job offers and the related applications from PhDs, the selected combinations ‘job offers - PhD candidates’ eligible for co-financing were announced on January 2017. Six PhD graduates of Politecnico di Milano were selected by the panel, including four from the Bioengineering program, and one from Aerospace Engineering, and Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
