DEUSTO discusses Sustainable Development Goals and how to address them in the framework of its research projects

On 11 December 2018, the University of Deusto hosted a training session on United Nations  2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with a focus on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.


The Sustainable Development Goals  (SDGs) are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. UN’s SDGs have become a key reference for Horizon Europe - the future Research Framework Programme of the European Union.


The session was structured in two parts. In the first part, Alfonso Dubois Mingoya (former Professor of the University of the Basque Country specialised on the themes of Development Aid, Cooperation and Development and International Economy) made a short introduction to the political agenda. In the second, the participants worked in groups and addressed in a practical and dynamic way the inclusion of the Sustainable Development Goal in research projects in order to maximise their social impact.
