LARAM School on Landslide Risk

Dear All,

Covid19 outbreak is a global threat and, first of all, we hope that you and your families are fine. The LARAM team is fine and we hope to meet students and lecturers again in person as soon as possible.

Also this year the LARAM School ( will take the occasion to teach and be together with the students. We will simply do in a different way.

We reshaped the traditional schedule of the School, with the lectures and the other activities comprised in the time window from 13:00 to 19:30 in Italian Summer time (=UTC+2).

Compared to traditional LARAM School Editions, it will be unchanged:

  • the international application call
  • the selection among applicants
  • final certificate of attendance to the students
  • mandatory, interactive participation of the students (to receive the end of the School certificate)


·                     40 selected PhD students

·                     10 registered Young Doctors (PhD dedended not before 2015)

DEADLINE: Monday 29 June

·                     Registration of Young Doctors (PhD dedended not before 2015)


·                     PhD students: 250 eur

The selection of the participants will be based on an evaluation of the candidate’s curriculum – including academic performance, previous research experience and publications – and on the content of the recommendation letter(s) in relation to the PhD year, field of expertise and research topic. The list of the selected students will be issued by mid July 2020.
