Mobility is a key issue in LiSP. This doctoral program promotes mobility both at the local and international levels.

Locally, one of the advantages of the inter­institutional structure of LiSP and the physical proximity of the institutions is that students can enroll in courses provided by any and all of five institutions, to make use of different and complimentary infrastructures and support services, and to interact with the faculty members as well as with peers from the different institutions involved.

The initiative “Lisbon Seminars in Social Psychology” guarantees the interchange between all institutions facilitating the relationship between students and researchers and other faculty members and providing a stimulating intellectual environment with a wide breadth of expertise. This interchange is further extended with public presentations and discussion of dissertation projects at the end of the first year in a different institution each year.

At the international level, students are expected to plan a research internship of (at least) three months to one of the international research laboratories listed as collaborating institutions (see below). Furthermore, the program will explicitly promote the co-­supervision of thesis with colleagues from foreign universities and European doctorates.
