CSG -Research in Social Sciences and Management emanates from the four research centres of ISEG – Lisbon School of Economics and Management of Universidade de Lisboa:
- ADVANCE – Centre for Advanced Research in Management of ISEG
- CESA – Centre for African and Development Studies
- GHES – Social and Economic History Research Unit
- SOCIUS – Centre for Research in Economic and Organizational Sociology
The purpose of this convergence is to bring together a group of researchers who share a similar conception of the study of socio-economic and organizational reality, increasing the critical mass and enhancing the complementarity of approaches.
Their investigation integrates the social and behavioral variables in the understanding of complex phenomena, whose particularity follows from the space and time in which they are located.
It is understood that the association of these researchers allows the crossing of their research conceptions, articulating them in the groups and lines of research, creating common events and generating more opportunities for joint work – in a word, allowing the scientific advance in their areas and the best dissemination and transfer of knowledge to society.
