Research grants

Research grants allow Master’s Degree graduates and PhDs to pursue research activities at the university or in the projects offered to the candidates.

Selections for temporary advisors

Through direct selection for temporary advisors [ITA] candidates can collaborate with Ca' Foscari University of Venice as experts with proven expertise and specialization. Applications are examined by a specific commission on the basis of the education, the resume and/or through an interview.

Mission

The Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics (DAIS) was created after combining three departments (environmental sciences, informatics and statistics); it is engaged in multidisciplinary research produced by the recognized experience of the researchers in the analysis of environmental systems, in the management and modelization of environmental and informatic systems, in climate studies, in complexity, in the preservation of cultural heritage and in sustainability.

The research activity generates significant impact on educational activities through a complete degree programme (Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD programmes) in Environmental sciences and informatics, a Master’s degree programme in Conservation Science and Technology for Cultural Heritage and a multidisciplinary PhD in Science and Management of Climate Change.

All the courses of the Master’s and PhD programmes are taught in English.

Sustainability

Since 2010 Ca’ Foscari commits to sustainability through the programme Sustainable Ca' Foscari and in September 2014 the Sustainable Campus project was launched to promote and develop sustainable actions and projects in all the university seats.

Among the many initiatives and events, the Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics promotes the Bookcrossing initiative in via Torino Scientific Campus with a fix stand where anyone can give and take books free of charge, participating to a virtuous circle based on re-use of resources and knowledge sharing.

Furthermore, students can acquire Sustainability Competencies: voluntary based activities dedicated to economic, social or environmental sustainability. The student must discuss with the contact professor of the involved Department to identify an activity, such as courses, workshops, interviews, research..., and the nature of its final proposal. Once the activity carried out and the final proposal approved, the teacher will register 1 extracurrricular CFU in the student’s plan of study.
