The research group on Digital Humanities is based upon the philosophical perspective of Vilém Flusser, articulating several fields of contemporary academic knowledge (such as engineering, computational science, social sciences, media theory, arts, etc.) in order to try to apprehend what the emerging 'digital world' brings to the human condition.
The research group Relational Heritage reflects on the importance of heritage in contemporary times. Supported by the theoretical perspective of Richard Rorty, it aims to expand and deepen our sense of community and reaffirm heritage as an ethical-political choice that takes place amid a net of relations and institutions.
The research group Situated Entrepreneurship is based upon the logic of Effectuation (Saras Sarasvathy contribution to contemporary theories of entrepreneurship). The theoretical perspective emphasizes the strategic importance of uncertainty, unpredictability and the rooting in local truths and practices for entrepreneurial activity.
