The lessons will be held in the months of March and October with one of the following methods based on the progress of the Covid-19 health emergency:

a) REMOTELY on the University digital platform Microsoft Teams,
b) IN THE PRESENCE in the "Condarelli" Hall (Building 2, Ground Floor). The definitive modalities together with the calendar with dates and times will be communicated via email to all PhD students.
