Innovation for Sustainable Development (Innovación para el Desarrollo Sostenible IDI – SOS)

This team aims at promoting and strategically managing research projects related to sustainable development and innovation, from a participatory scope, including social, cultural and political equity, and economic effectiveness perspectives, as well as the rational use of natural resources, ecological sustainability, orderly territorial development and appropriate technologies.

Coordinator: Dra. Marta Tostes Vieira


We are renowned researchers in generating scientific evidence aimed at creating innovative sustainable development models. We have experience in studies that integrate economic, social, environmental and technological factors, the purpose of which has been to generate socially fair and ecologically balanced development processes. We defend inter- and intra- generational equity, which requires directing investment and scientific and technological progress towards meeting the needs of different human groups in the present, without compromising the possibility of future generations to meet theirs.
