Agenda 2023



The projects in this edition are dedicated to studying the Integral Human Development of the Peripheries of Humanity. This theme refers to the condition of life affected by marginalization, abandonment, pain, deprivation, loss of meaning and hope. The poor, sick, marginalized, itinerant, displaced, gypsies, prisoners, loners, and people who live and work at sea or on the road, should be those who benefit from the initiatives of assistance, care and human, social and spiritual promotion of this group of researchers.

Throughout the program, the researchers are monitored through monthly meetings with their scientific tutors, but also through weekly meetings with the rest of the program group. The seven grants awarded are intended to develop the applied projects and also to create a working group among the researchers.

The DHI aims to train researchers who stand out in society through a voice of leadership, with an ethical presence. For this reason, researchers will be offered training in the areas of Ethics, Leadership and many others (as Communication, Media Training, Economy of Francesco). This training is complemented by an incentive for external communication of the projects included in the Program, with the aim of promoting new ethical voices in the public space, with applied knowledge and methodologies.

The DHI Program takes place on the premises of the Lisbon Campus of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, in Portuguese.

In the mid and longer term, the program aims to produce intermediate outcomes, such as:

  • Promoting voices with an impact on society | Creating ethical leaders
  • Strengthening the role of women in academia and society
  • Human development of each researcher and also of the group
  • Increasing studies on the topic of DHI
  • Identifying policies that enable DHI
