Martina Cicaloni is currently completing a traineeship at Prospex. Martina is closely involved in the European research project “BioCannDo”, engaging consumers around the bio-based economy. She is also supporting Prospex in running the stakeholder dialogues on fair taxation in five EU Member-States, for the European Commission (DG TAXUD).
Martina combines her expertise in running European projects with a strong affinity with issues such as the interface between technology and human rights, as well as climate change.
Before joining Prospex, Martina spent ten months in Nicosia (Cyprus) with the European Voluntary Service (EVS) programme. In Cyprus, she worked at “Hope For Children”, an independent NGO working on children rights, especially unaccompanied minors that are asylum seekers and refugees. She coordinated the CRC Campus Club, an educational project to promote children rights at The English School of Nicosia.
Martina holds a Master’s Degree in Management in Organisation and Territorial Networks at the Faculty of Sociology in Trento (Italy). She wrote her master thesis at eCrime, a multidisciplinary research group within the Faculty of Law (University of Trento). Her thesis was focused on the European project “Surf and Sound. Improving and sharing knowledge on the role of the internet in the human trafficking process”.
Martina is a member of the “Italian Climate Network”, where she writes articles for the section “Women, Rights and Climate”. She is also part of “Antenne Migranti. Monitoraggio lungo la rotta del Brennero”, an independent group involved in the assistance to refugees and asylum seekers located in the Italian region of Trentino Alto Adige.
