As described in the University’s QA Policy (currently available only in Italian) Politiche di Ateneo per la qualità, the University of Trento has a clearly defined programme for the recruitment, career advancement and professional development of both Professors and Researchers. This programme pays particular attention to ensuring coherence between planning for research projects and the requirements of academic departments.

Through this programming the University:

  • is proactive in eliminating any imbalances of gender or other forms of disparities which in any way may condition rewarding merit
  • periodically evaluates whether the recruitment procedures in practice effectively meet the programmes aims
  • promotes career advancement and offers Teaching Faculty opportunities for professional development, encouraging innovative teaching and learning practices and promoting a strong tie between teaching and research.
