Besides the organization of courses, conferences and publications another main objective of our Foundation is the promotion of research.

The Foundation aims to be a place of cultural and knowledge exchange; where working groups can meet and that promotes the research involving young students and the creation of new study group, which are often coordinated by university teachers. 

The research ranges from history to anthropology, from social sphere to international relations, from cultural history to the current events; favouring the collaboration with other public and private research entities, mainly university, and the dialogue between the scientific knowledge and civil society.

 

Furthermore, the purpose of combining the scientific and social utility for the community and the research objectives opens a dialogue with territorial administrations and institutions.
