Social Innovation

Society, innovation and social capital: Alan Advantage carries out socio-economic research activities with the objective to promote innovation and sustainable growth of people, enterprises and territories. In its research activities, Alan Advantage adopts an interdisciplinary approach that combines, and develops both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, following when possible the research-action principles. In fact, analysis and interpretation are combined with ad-hoc interventions that aim at changing the analysed context, thanks to the active participation of relevant actors. In a virtuous cycle: research creates knowledge which is transformed in concrete actions. These, thanks to the experience, increase knowledge, and so on.
