5) Contexts of scientific and professional work

Scientific and professional work is focused on Human Development theories, on Creating Knowledge theories, on Participatory Action Research methodologies and on Lifelong Learning Strategies, Politics and Institutions. The principal epistemological, theoretical and empirical research thread is the Complex Human Development related to local theory of educational processes. Particular attention is on relationship between emotional knowledge and rational knowledge, and tangible and intangible cultural knowledge. The fundaments are analyzed starting by processes of creating complex knowledge structures in individuals and groups in the framework of Knowledge Society and through the perspective of Lifelong Lifewide Learning. Researches and professional activities in counseling, education and professional training at different levels of analysis and intervention, are focused on the multidimensional approach of Participatory Action Research. The operational framework is the Educational Network/System, within which the different educational agencies, operators and services interact in the wider context of Local and Global Development for quality of environmental, social and individual life. All these research issues are crossed by the attention to the quality dimension and in the last years the problems of human development have been mostly considered in the trans- disciplinary dimension of the culture of peace. On the plan of the strategies and the practices of research, the experiences have allowed the disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches and the integration between theoretical research and applied research. These experiences are focused also on international Networking of universities and organizations responsible of the strategies and the plans of territorial development.
