Target group

The course is open to Italian, foreign or with double citizenship partcipants.

Applications are invited from the archival and information science profession, memory and cultural heritage sector and public policy field with focus on IPR and related issues. Master students, PhD students, junior faculty, researchers in the humanities, social sciences and information technology are encouraged to apply. The School aims to provide a better attendance chance to young participants, particularly from Central and Eastern European (EU and not EU) countries.


It is expected that participants will come with different qualifications and backgrounds, but the unique prerequisite is their active interest or engagement with archives in the current digital environments, as recorded in the CV and the manifestation of interest letter, both requested as mandatory attachments to the application form. The selection of participants, in case the number of application requests would exceed the available places, would be based on those documents.

Language requirement

The working language of the Summer School is English.
All applicants have to demonstrate a strong command of spoken and written English to be able to participate actively in discussions at seminars and workshops. Some of the shortlisted applicants may be contacted for a telephone interview.
