Extract of mission regulations

The procedure is very alike/similar to “budget for mission”, except from one important difference: you must select your doctoral Coordinator as Responsible for the Mission. She/He will select the 10% budget as funding to be used and will give the due authorization.
Briefly, see below the main information you have to provide:

  • Type of request: BUD10_mission paid by budget 10%
  • Responsible: Name of the Doctoral Coordinator
  • Project: leave it empty. The Coordinator will select the budget 10% funding during the authorization process.

The system automatically will also send an authorization request to the Dean of the Department.
If you have any enquiries about the Mission, please write to risorse.umane@iusspavia.it.

In order to spend a period abroad, you have to ask for the authorization to the Academic Board, through the dedicated form, along with the invitation letter from the hosting institution and a letter from your Supervisor.
All the documents have to be sent at least 1 month before the departure date to the PhD Coordinator (in copy, postlaurea@iusspavia.it), who will be in charge to present the request to the Academic Board.
N.B.: The increase of the fellowship is usually paid by the end of the period abroad, against a formal letter signed by the research Supervisor of the hosting institution. For any stay longer than 4 months, the scholarship increase can be paid every 2 months, against a formal letter signed by the research Supervisor of the hosting institution.

In order to spend a research or study period at an Italian Institution which does not have any agreement with the School, you must ask for the authorization to the Scientific Board, against an invitation letter from the hosting institution and a letter from your Supervisor.

Starting from the 2nd year, to all the PhD students is assigned a budget of 1.534,33 euros for research activity. This budget has to be used for activities related to the PhD purpose, according with the Regulations.
Examples of the allowable expences:

  • Registration/enrollment to conventions and conferences;
  • Missions in Italy and abroad;
  • Consumables for lab activities;
  • Books;
  • Softwares;
  • Small items;
  • Laptop.

The use of Budget 10% is linked to previous authorization from both the PhD Coordinator and the Head of the Department, prior Supervisor’s approval – when required.
For further information, please see “Regulation for Doctoral Courses – Title III”.
