Research centers

Research centeres are part of departmental orgaization: they have no organs, no resources and no budget autonomy, but they help in working on some research topics.

Research centers are part of departmental organization with the function to work on some topics. SDE Department approved the constitution of six research centers and a laboratory (Laboratorio Multimedia Lab)
We mention here below the six research centers activated at the SDE Department:

The activity of research center moves from the characteristics, trends and changes in labour organization, with particular attention to the interaction between economic-occupational and welfare subsystems.
C.I.Do.S.Pe.L.'s aims, in a constant interaction between theory and practice, are: collection of documents, promotion of research and studies, organization of seminars and conferences at local/national/international level, constitution of courses and training programmes, publications for disseminating research outputs and methods.

Ce.S.I.S. (Centro studi e ricerche sulla innovazione sociale), Director: Prof. Ivo Colozzi
The activity of this research center is focused on the transition from an industrial society to a service and knowledge society in the frame of globalization. This change is based on continuous innovations that produce a morphogenesis of society systems. As a result, there are not only positive effects but also negative ones, unexpected, or even systemic crisis. Even if social innovations are connected to the technological ones, the former have their own specificity and autonomy. As a consequence, appropriate studies are requested to understand their causes, processes and results.
