What we do
We are a think-tank based in Brussels and we study how social trust can inform new models of governance in a networked society. Inspired by ecosystems and their dynamics, our research touches a vast array of inquiries ranging from trust propagation to community-centric governance, resonant leadership, social impact, and social engagement.
Why we do what we do
Governance is essentially about how we coordinate each other. In the age of networks, we need a new agile framework for interactions that is inclusive of formal decision-making and of more informal coordination mechanisms, and that can adapt to centralized and to decentralized dynamics.
What we’d like to achieve
We engage in applied research and - starting with a referral system - we aim to provide online tools for individuals and organizations looking to embrace new means of adaptive governance - at scale.
