This academic network has for task to mature a multidisciplinary reflection with a threefold orientation:
The first axis concerns the possibilities of sustainable development, taking into account the links between economic, social and cultural structures. The analysis of the renewal of the thought of development is an important aspect.
The second deals with globalization from transition mechanisms. Particular emphasis is placed on integration processes and their links with the immediate peripheries in their commercial, geopolitical and demographic aspects.
The third is entrepreneurial dynamics with the transformation of structures and their logic under the impulse of globalization, the interferences of cultural processes and the effects of new communication techniques.
