b) Methodological training seminars held by members of the College;
c) Training activities for the acquisition of soft skills proposed by the board and by the doctoral school in Human Sciences;
d) Other training activities, such as Summer or Winter Schools, periods of study and research abroad, participation in national and international conferences.
