The research carried out by the working group is multidisciplinary.
The experts try to develop new models, tools and methods based on common hypotheses, shared languages and expanded conceptions, which are not possible, or are difficult to achieve if each remains within their original area of competence. This requires an effort to understand others’ positions, not from the discipline’s internal assumptions but from those of others, thinking simultaneously from each discipline.
The experts are open to different theoretical, conceptual and, of course, ideological premises. This does not mean that the approach should be eclectic or relativistic: the researcher will have his own hypotheses and assumptions, but he/she should also be open to the arguments made by those who do not think like him/her, in order to understand, for example, whether they address differences about facts (or assumed facts), hypotheses, constraints (for example, what can be feasible in a given situation) or values (or, more commonly, the application of values to specific situations).
The experts come from diverse disciplines and sectors:
- University professors and researchers;
- Industry representatives active in HR themes or CSR or in sustainable development and digitalization according to the subjects chosen;
- Experts from the non-for-profit associations;
- Consultants ;
- Representatives from the public sector.
