We are happy to announce the launching of the Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information: Foundations of Future Information Technologies (DP-PMI).

The DP-PMI aims at providing advanced curricular and research training in the recent developments and fundamental challenges in information sciences and technologies.

The DP-PMI is hosted by Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), the School of Science and Engineering of the University of Lisbon, in Portugal, and eight associated research centres.

The programme is funded mainly by a 2.2 MEuro grant from the Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT). The programme will start in January 2014 and will recruit up to 40 students over the next four years, with the last DP-PMI class expected to graduate in 2021.

The Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information aims at recruiting top-level students at the global scale. The applications for the first edition of the DP-PMI, starting in January 2014, are now open!
