Knowledge & Innovation

Knowledge and Innovation’s mission is to use research to increase – through research, training and interdisciplinary dialogue – the relevance and effectiveness of social sciences, in general, and sociology in particular, to interpret the profound processes of change that are affecting contemporary societies, to understand how they are evolving over time, to identify the stress phenomena that they produce and to investigate available options for their effective governance.

For Knowledge and Innovation, this translates into a commitment to work to strengthen the interpretative capacities of social research, by both broadening its sphere of action (incorporating “new provinces” of objects not yet taken into account) and strengthening its capacity to probe deeply into social phenomena (to penetrate the newest and most hidden layers of reality, which, at present, tend to escape analysis).
