Risk and Emergency Management (REM) is one of the three curricula of the doctoral programme in Understanding and Managing Extremes run by the UME Graduate School, the others being Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology (ROSE) and Weather Related Risk (WRR).
Apart from the small regional tax (“diritto allo studio“) no participation fees are foreseen for the UME doctoral programme. In addition, candidates admitted to the UME School are generally awarded a doctoral scholarship worth about 1,000 Euro net per month. The duration of the scholarship is 36 months and can be increased by up to 50% during periods abroad. The scholarship is sufficient for covering all general living and accommodation expenses.
