The Center was established in 2017 with the aim of responding to the unavoidable challenges that have emerged in our society. Working between disciplines, at their borders, is the action needed nowadays more than ever in the production of knowledge. Our commitment is characterized by attention for vital processes and their protection in a context characterized by emergencies. This is pursued through the following crucial points:

·   experience as consisting of cognitive as well as emotional and sensorial domains intertwining personal skills and digital technologies and enhancing collective intelligence;

·   cultivating an effective methodological dialogue with those traditions of wisdom that contribute to the existential understanding of ourselves and the environment;

·   contributing to the emerging field of contemplative social science.
