Visiting Professors

The University of L'Aquila promotes and supports the role of Visiting Professors, Visiting Researchers and Visiting Fellows to enhance internationalisation as well as cultural and scientific development.

To this end, professors, researchers and high-profile scholars from foreign universities or research centres are encouraged to spend time in our institution, also on the basis of specific international agreements, in order to carry out teaching activities and seminars within our undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D courses.

Visiting Professors, Researchers and Fellows collaborate with teaching and research structures and carry out programmes that comply with our University's strategic objectives. They may also be nominated as members of university exam commissions and thesis assessment boards for degree and Ph.D courses.
