If you are going to develop a project Italy or Sweden in collaboration with a university or institution of any kind, you can apply to the C.M. Lerici Foundation’s call for applications.
The host institution in Italy or Sweden can be public or private.
This means that the host institution DOESN’T have to be necessarily a university.
Don’t forget that you need a letter from the host institution, in which both the project and the visiting period are confirmed.
