National Scientific Qualification (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale – ASN). From 2012 onwards, academics, scientists, and scholars can have a new position or be promoted to Associate Professor or Full Professor through a specific procedure: the National Scientific Qualification (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale – ASN). ASN implies a nationwide selection to obtain an official qualification called “abilitazione”, without which it is not possible to access to the highest academic positions. Yearly official calls (“concorsi nazionali”) are issued by the Ministry of University and Research for various academic recruitment fields (“raggruppamenti concorsuali”), and are open for 4 months. Applications are examined by committees composed by experienced Full Professors. The Qualification is valid for 9 years.
If you intend to apply with UNITUS as Host Institution for an ERC CoG, we can provide assistance for the preparation of your ERC grant proposal.
Principal Investigators have the right to require the transfer of their research project to a new beneficiary, as long as the research objectives of the project are preserved. Grant portability empowers researchers and gives them freedom to bring their research and research team with them.
