Ph.D. colloquium during Italian Covid - 19 lockdown

In this period of forced isolation due to current Covid-19 crisis, this series of online webinars is intended to keep our Ph.D. research group active, so as to provide every junior and senior scholar with the opportunity to share his/her own research and progresses. The aim is to prevent weeks of work without feedback from peers.
