This fund is not available for visiting students.
Art. 14 comma 6 of the UNIFI Doctorate Regulation - From the second year each doctoral student (with and without scholarship but not visiting students) is assured a fund for mobility for 'research activity in Italy and abroad’ – of about 3.100 euros (in the two years).
The council requires the students to propose a plan of the expenses at the second year to be agreed with the supervisor, in order to use wisely and in a timely manner this resource.
For the COVID19 emergency the type of expenses allowed was extended, as long as they are "relevant to the student's educational path":
1. Publication costs of journal articles (only if in open access mode)
2. software licenses
3. registration and participation, even remotely, to: training courses and language courses, even remotely, "single courses" or other paid courses at universities, including other than the University of Florence or Pisa, even remotely - conferences and workshops - conferences and workshops in Florence or Pisa
4. costs incurred for the language revision of articles and/or thesis
5. laboratory consumables
6. Inventory assets, costing even more than € 516.46 euros, excluding VAT: laboratory equipment and computer equipment.
However, other expenses may be needed, of a different nature to those indicated above and for which the relevance to the training course can be demonstrated, and within the budget allocated upon the fund for mobility.
