The National PhD Program in AI comprises 5 federated doctorates bringing together 61 organizations, including universities and other research institutions. The 5 doctorates share a common basis in the foundations and methodological aspects of AI, each developing an area of specialization in a strategic application sector of these methodologies. Each doctorate is coordinated by a lead university, in collaboration with CNR, the National Research Council. Following a national selection procedure, in 2021 the Sant’Anna School became one of the 8 partner institutions of the PhD AI for Society coordinated by the University of Pisa. This doctorate, whose faculty council includes numerous members of the L’EMbeDS Department of Excellence, is an integral part of a dynamic community operating in the domains of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Other initiatives linking this community include, for instance, the FAIR foundation.

The goal of the three-year PhD in AI for Society is to foster the advanced education of researchers, innovators and professionals specializing in cutting-edge AI methods and their application to issues of high societal impact. The doctorate ensures an integrated and “complex” vision of the ecosystem of AI technologies and solutions, able to address societal challenges with a systemic, multi-disciplinary approach.

For the doctoral cycle starting in the academic year 2024-2025 (40th), the Sant’Anna School is offering three among the scholarships listed in the call for applications of the PhD in AI for Society. These scholarships, funded by L’EMbeDS and by the ERC StG project DANTE, will support research projects in the following areas:  
•    1 scholarship in AI, Statistics, Computer Science and Engineering for methodological research driven by big data with applications in Economics, Management and Law (reference principal investigators Francesca Chiaromonte and Andrea Vandin);
•    2 scholarships in Scientific Machine Learning for Urban Microclimate Surrogate Modelling (reference principal investigator Giovanni Stabile);

Application for the PhD in AI for Society are due by 20 June 2024 and can be made online following the instructions provided at this link
