Contents, Objectives and Partnerships

PhD+ is a unique programme aimed at fostering innovation and entrepreneurial mind-set in students, graduates, PhD students, PhDs and academics.


The programme consists of a series interactive and engaging lectures given by national and international speakers; the main topics concern intellectual property protection and exploitation, business development, innovation management, communication and personal branding. The programme culminates in a final event during while participants pitch the research project or the start up idea in front of a panel of experts and investors. Moreover, the programme provides coaching and mentoring activities, carried out in collaboration with experts in innovation and technology transfer.


• Provide the skills that allow academics to protect and exploit their research results
• Increase career opportunities for graduates and PhDs
• Develop intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship
• Take advantage of technology transfer services provided by the University and other institutions
• Enhance the internationalization of students and spin-offs
• Improve the network of the University of Pisa with national and international technology transfer offices


PhD+ is in partnership with the Master in Business Administration (MBA): the best talents from the PhD+, selected during the final event, have the opportunity to take part in the “Entrepreneurship” module of the course, so together, PhD+ and MBA students, will work in mixed teams in order to push forward the business plans and boost the chances of success.

PhD+ 2016 is in partnership with the laboratory led by Roberta Bracciale, assistant professor in Sociology of Cultural and Communication Processes at the Department of Political Sciences.
