Research

Many different voices have pointed at the lack of imagination in the public sphere and at our current inability to design different desirable and credible futures that are collectively shared. At BDL we offer a inter-and transdisciplinary platform for a critical and grounded investigation of the relations between design, technology and the economy and a springboard to imagine a transformation.

Many different voices have pointed at the lack of imagination in the public sphere and at our current inability to imagine different desirable and credible futures, that are collectively shared. A lot of our imagined future is around “fantastic” or “catastrophic” possibilities of technologies, but what about new viable way we live and work together?

The interdisciplinary research aims at:

  • Developing new understandings of organizations, work and markets – the economy at large – and investigate alternative change paths to a sustainable society;
  • Improving our understanding of how work and markets are organized in creative and cultural industries, widely understood, as places of experimentation and societal transformation;
  • Investigating new ways of designing and organizing with digital technologies, including Artificial Intelligence.
