Partnership with EMERGENCY 

In 2017, the University of Pavia signed a protocol agreement with the NGO Emergency to start a collaboration in the areas of strategy planning, scientific research and specialized medical training in the Central African Republic and in Sudan.


A Voice for the World 

This charity event started in 2014 from the collaboration between the University of Pavia and the hospital Policlinico San Matteo, and uses the international voice of the baritone Ambrogio Maestri for the service of a good scientific and cultural cause. Every year a fund-raising event is organized to support scientific and cultural causes.

Thanks to the funds raised, every year, through CICOPS, the University of Pavia provides scholarships for the improvement of studies aimed at the various fields of rehabilitation and prevention of diseases that are still endemic, especially in developing countries.


“Citizenship and Constitution”

Paths of education in citizenship for middle secondary schools and high schools of Pavia and its Province. The project is organized by the institute “A.
