Share an aperitif with us! - Virtual meeting for UniTrento ER+ ICM project participants
On January 15th, “Share an aperitif with us!” took place among ICM students from the 2017/2018/2019 projects as well as nominated grantees for the upcoming semester. Through this virtual meeting, students had the possibility to share their experience and socialize in order to build a UniTrento ICM contact network.
Building on their past experiences and expectations for the future ones, UniTrento took the opportunity to launch a contest for activities in the future.
UniTrento ICM Network
We are building a network of former UniTrento ICM students!
To recognise and value your common experience at our university combined with your diverse origins, backgrounds, and academic areas, your involvement represents an indispensable added value. In this way, UniTrento will surely be able to foster communication among its incoming students but more importantly, it will help you stay in touch with the university community you once belonged to.
Over the last few days, the 8 students who attended the first semester in Trento are taking their final exams and will soon be back to their own Countries. Due to the Italian Prime Minister's Decree (DPCM), that has taken effect on November 6th, 2020 throughout Italy in order to help contain and reduce a recent surge in Coronavirus infections, university classes and exams at UniTrento have been held completely on-line.
At the end of the Fall Semester, the ICM grantees found their experience equally valuable notwithstanding the virtual arrangement of the activities due to the Covid-19 emergency. Our incoming students had the opportunity to complete the planned activities, take part to various activities and enjoy the seasonal snowy territory. Further information about ICM grantees feedback can be found at the testimonials page in the link box.
For the Spring semester 2020/2021, that will officially begin in February, 10 new students are going to arrive in Trento for in-presence mobility. However, due to Covid emergency, 4 ER+ICM grantees will not be able to reach Trento thus carrying out their mobility from their home country in a virtual modality.
Funding: Please note that for the mobility to be funded, it needs to be planned with a period of activities in Trento for at least 3 months and that the grant will be paid only for the period in presence. In case of impossibility of returning to their home institutions due to the Covid emergency, students will be granted an extension of their mobility according to the principle of “force majeure”.
Arrival: a 14-day self-isolation period is deemed mandatory for incoming students coming from non-EU countries. The quarantine period is covered by the EU grant support but cannot be spent in university housing and students must arrange and pay for their own quarantine lodging.
In order to facilitate transportation, UniTrento provides pick up service for those students arriving at the Verona airport. In case no direct flight to this airport is available, it is therefore recommended to plan the international flight to Rome Fiumicino airport, from which two daily internal flights are available to reach Verona. Please keep checking our page for international students for further information.
In any case, we recommend a thorough evaluation of the situation before planning your mobility.
In case of exceptional expenses due to withdrawal or interruption for “force majeure”, they may be reimbursed, if no other refund has been applied yet. Reimbursement will depend on reasonableness of the costs and available resources. Therefore, it is requested that each student in this situation submit proof of:
- all travel expenses (airplane tickets, trains, etc.), insurance, housing rental deposits and/or travel tickets purchased and then not used due to trip cancellation.
- official reimbursement requests sent to travel companies which have been rejected (i.e. the company refuses to reimburse you).
Please contact the reference Mobility Office for further information.
Given the uncertain situation, please do not bear expenses for your travel arrangements too early.
Useful information for already closed student mobility
Regarding the post-mobility required administrative documents, we kindly remind Partner Universities to provide UniTrento with a Transcript of Records in English, certifying the Credit Recognition of the implemented student mobility.
Otherwise, a Declaration of Recognition can be found here or in the download box of the ER+ICM webpage. The document is to be filled by the Sending Institution after receiving the UniTrento Transcript of Record of the student mobility.
Starting from the Fall Semester 2020, Staff mobility may be carried out either entirely in presence, entirely online or in a blended modality. The individual support will be paid only for those held in presence. Please contact the International Relations Division for further information.
Students and staff of our partner universities are invited to take part to the Joint Online Workshop between UniTrento and Burapha University - February 1st, 2021 8:30-11.20 CET.
“Blending Theories and Techniques in Brain imaging: Some examples from ongoing studies”
Organised by Prof. Dr. Job and Dr. Wongupparaj, the event results from the collaboration between the Department of Psychology and Cognitive Science (UniTrento) and the College of Research Methodology and Cognitive Science (Burapha University).
