Values. Visions. Inspirations.
In the past, enterprises used to be the intellectual, ideological, inspirational platforms that could radically improve the world. Like 1960’s Olivetti or 1990’s Apple, technology can act as the trigger of a higher vision, embodying and empowering on socio-cultural values.
Social Sciences and in Humanities (SSH) are “the” research competences to discover the next evolutions and revolutions of culture. Visioning enables and ensures the conversion of cultural values into functional, smart, sustainable enterprise futures.
Fine arts, literatures and design are “the” seedbeds of visions ideas and images shaped in words, visualized in paintings, printed in books, displayed in movies, in history, in philosophy.
