Open Labs 2021

Archived notice

This year we will offer two OpenLabs sessions a year, one in March-April and one in October-November.
Thesis places will be offered in each OpenLabs session with an expected start date before the end of the following semester (e.g. theses presented in the first session (March 2021) must start by January 2022; theses presented in the October session must start by July 2022).
This year, students cannot visit the laboratories in person, due to the COVID-19 emergency, but every project supervisor will indicate dates, between 8 and 22 April, during which he/she will present his/her thesis project(s) to interested students.
Available projects can be found on the site: In the "Date OpenLabs" field, in addition to the date and time of the session, all necessary information required to connect and follow the online presentations in remote, will be shown.
During this period, students are required only to participate in the thesis presentations to understand the nature and timing of the project(s), however you are not required to apply online for the position at this point.

From April 23 to May 2, 2021, after following the presentations of your interest, you may apply for a thesis position using the website You may indicate a preference for a maximum of three thesis projects.
If requested, you may be required to upload a single file (pdf) containing information on the undergraduate degree you are frequenting and a list of exams that have been completed with relative grades, together with your online application.

From May 3 to May 14, project supervisors will invite selected students for a further meeting and will also communicate to students who have not been selected for an interview. If you have not been selected, you can withdraw your application and resubmit a new one for another thesis position. For this reason, we recommend that you check the website regularly to see if you have been selected for an interview or not (menu: “Le tue domande di tesi”).
