Innovation, Knowledge, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability

Research aim, lines & team

Brief description of the research aims

While Europe finds itself with a stagnant economy and traces its future with innovative bets that advocate territorial specialization, the path towards achieving a higher level of well-being is slowed down by successive social problems (the need for a greater degree of social-cultural cohesion -religious, growing risk of social exclusion, aging population, digital gap, migration,...) and environmental difficulties (increase in pollution and CO2 levels, global warming,...).

To transform and improve this situation from public and private organizations, it is necessary to innovate and undertake in the key of social inclusion and environmental balance. An important objective of this team is to investigate the keys that contribute to this transformation.
