Business consulting firm NexumStp’s Olbia office, led by partner and labour consultant Giovanni Degortes, has signed an agreement with the University of Sassari (UNISS) that supports the financing of one of six scholarships for a doctorate in Economics, management and quantitative methods in the academic year 2022/2023. The project is part of the PNRR (National Recovery and Resilience Plan) allocation and aims to seize the Next Generation EU opportunity for innovative doctorates.
To take part in the public admission for the doctorate, students must hold a Master’s degree (or other equivalent qualification gained abroad). Applications must be submitted by 1 p.m. on 11 August by logging onto https://uniss.esse3.cineca.it.
The 38th cycle of doctoral courses at the University of Sassari starts on 1 November 2022, and all the required documentation must be received by the university by 31 October.
The specific subject of the doctorate supported by NexumStp is related to the field of ‘Welfare, human capital and the territory’. 50% of the scholarship is co-financed by Uniss and Nexumstp
Those who are awarded this important opportunity will carry out this training course at Nexumstp’s headquarters in Olbia, interacting with the large national enterprise that now has 59 offices throughout Italy and assists around 22,000 companies, mainly SMEs. At the end of this experience, candidates will have acquired concrete methodologies to engage in scientific research and carry out innovation and research projects that respond to the specific needs of the companies from which NexumStp has direct feedback.
Professor Dimitri Paolini, coordinator of the PhD programme at the University of Sassari, says: “Collaboration between the academic world and companies isindispensable for forging the path of future professionals and facilitating young people’s entry into the workplace. Projects such as this one, which we developed thanks to our partnership with Nexumstp, allow us to provide innovative and quality training”.
Giovanni Degortes, partner at NexumStp, comments, “It is with great enthusiasm that we join this new experience with the University of Sassari, firm in our belief that this exchange between education and the world of work is needed now more than ever. We are also proud to maintain strong ties with the local area while being part of a group that is expanding throughout Italy. In fact, this multidisciplinary nature and the fact that partners from different areas and fields of production all coexist in a single reality is Nexumstp’s prerogative. I hope that this experience will create the basis for a successful professional future for the resource that will attend the doctorate at our company, and that these initiatives will become a model for the local and national economy”.
