About our programme

The FEM International Doctoral Programme began in 2012 linking the collaboration network of the Genomics and Molecular Physiology of Fruit PhD School (GMPF) with the other training opportunities offered by all strategic sectors of the Foundation. From the beginning, the School aimed to be one of the most ambitious and innovative initiatives launched by FEM-CRI in recent years, consolidating an international collaboration network with research institutions from both academia and private sector.

The FEM International Doctoral Programme is also part of a new collaboration between FEM and the University of Trento, named Center for Agriculture, Food and Environment (C3A). Since November 2019 FEM and the Univeristy of Trento have started the Doctoral Programme in Agrifood and Environmental Sciences, that focuses on high-quality research and training in smart agriculture, and in particular on the production of quality food products, the reduction of environmental impact and a sustainable use of resources.

FEM promotes other collaborative projects, such a EU International Training Networks (ITNs) and EUREGIO projects. These collaborations strengthen FEM’s research activities and increase opportunities for student mobility in European countries.
