The Reggio Childhood Studies study and research path, coordinated by Professor Carla Bagnoli, aims to deepen and elaborate the educational experience of Reggio Emilia and address emerging challenges in the education sector, opening up to multiple disciplines. The course constitutes a residential community in Reggio Emilia, which sees all participants sharing spaces and working hours in the industrial context of the Reggio Children Foundation, chaired by Carla Rinaldi and directed by Cristian Fabbi. Furthermore, in the coming months, Fondazione Reggio Children will involve doctoral students in the new research site at the former Caffarri, where the themes of sustainability, learning and play, digital technology and their interactions will be explored.

The PhD in Reggio Childhood Studies, which can be accessed with all master's degrees or equivalent qualifications acquired abroad, is a highly interdisciplinary doctoral course deliberately open to different fields of knowledge and different areas of research including Education, Ethics , Knowledge, Aesthetics, Psychology, Technology, Heritage. The teaching staff of important national and international universities is prestigious. The origins of the students so far have ranged from France to China, from Russia to Brazil, from Iran to New Zealand, from Saudi Arabia to the United States, to Kenya and South Africa. From 2019, the year of the doctorate's debut, to today, 11 researchers have completed the course, exploring the most diverse themes: from social inclusion in museums to learning experiences born after the lockdown, from playful learning to education and taste. Not to be forgotten, among the doctors in Reggio Childhood Studies, the honorary award to Senator Liliana Segre, which took place on 28 October 2021.
