The School manages all the active PhD programs at the University in order to better integrate the policies of recruitment, selection, enrollment and studies for title at the University.

- management and procedures for the transfer of innovation regarding copyright use
- work time management
- scientific communication
The activities of the School are carried out respecting the prerogatives of doctorate courses, according to specific competencies assigned by the Statute of the University of Milano-Bicocca.
