As part of the activities in 2022, the DSSP supported the mobility of different members of our academic community: professors, students, and graduates of the Environment and Development Master Program in IDEA and our fellows from DSSP to national and international events. In the second half of 2022, the program supported six mobilities of our community: one professor, one of our doctoral students, one member of the management team of IDEA, and three graduates from the master’s program.
