ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

We are a platform of professionals and students which aims to highlight jobs where the direct care of the person is the principal focus, because they have the transforming power to make the social environment more human.

OUR HISTORY

Incontro Romano is an initiative started in 1990, thanks to Blessed Alvaro del Portillo, in order to spread the reality expressed by St. Josemaria, founder of Opus Dei: “All work has a dimension of service when it is carried out thinking about the people to whom it is directed”.

Since then there have been more than 6000 participants, from 60 countries, who over the years have attended the Incontro Romano International Forum.

WHAT WE DO

Incontro creates spaces for reflection and promotes activities which put the person at the centre of focus.

It fosters interdisciplinary research, training with excellence, and international initiatives. With these activities we seek to respond to the urgent challenge of protecting and improving our “shared home”: planet Earth.

An annual international Forum is held in Rome where studies, experiences, initiatives and projects from different countries are shared, revolving around a topic which is general, current and open.
