Programme-Torino.

The selection process that followed the application process of eligible PhD students resulted in 3 candidates from each university being chosen and participating in the programme (a total of 24 PhD students). The participating students came from 17 different nationalities, which added to the diversity of interaction within the programme activities. Similar to the previous workshop in Lyon, the training team comprised 20 experts from industry and universities, 1 scientific project coordinator, 1 project coordinator and 1 manager.
