“TESPS” is a three-year Ph.D. program focused on the energy transition and the sustainability of production processes. The goal is to contribute to the mission of the PNRR (Green Revolution and Ecological Transition) whose purpose is to ensure transition towards a society with zero environmental impact.

Respect for and protection of the environment, biodiversity and ecosystems have also been introduced among the constitutional rights which guarantee the well-being for citizens of today and for future generations.

The PhD program offers an interdisciplinary approach that combines the sectors of engineering, economics and law for the training of researchers and professionals capable of managing research and development projects in areas of industrial interest for the energy transition and the sustainability of production systems.
