Development cooperation

Development Cooperation is pursued by the University in order to improve global system conditions, particularly in those areas considered vulnerable; not only concentrating on economic growth but considering all possible development factors, including education.

UPO promotes:

  • the creation of partnerships for training and research in low/medium economies
  • health emergency training in Sierra Leone;
  • interdisciplinary treatment of cognitive and operative needs connected to the process of integration in Italy and the fight against radicalisation in the trans-Mediterranean area.
  • Education/training of students from countries that are war-torn or suffering from a humanitarian crisis
  • Education/training of political refugees in our country
