Nurturing talented researchers, especially young researchers, in the design and development of highly innovative research projects, enhancing relationships with the international research world and attracting international researchers are among the key priorities of Politecnico di Torino, in accordance with its Strategic Plan "Politecnico-Horizon 2020".

With this aim, Politecnico has recently approved actions designed to support high quality and multidisciplinary research, to enhance the internationalization of the scientific community, to encourage the participation of best researchers in important programmes dedicated to frontier research like ERC (European research Council) and to disseminate research results.

In November 2013 the European Commission awarded Politecnico di Torino with the label HR Excellence in Research, recognizing its committment in offering to researchers  coming from all over the world a positive environment, where  personal inclinations can be enhanced and grow up.
