X.ITE as a Transformational Research Centre

Academic research in social sciences is evolving along a double transformational path: 
  • as well as in hard (pure and applied) sciences is becoming to be "transferred" from university campuses and labs to firms, institutions and any kind of purposive social entity. Such a knowledge transfer process aims at accelerating the conversion of social science "discoveries" into social, entrepreneurial, managerial and institutional innovation. Within such dynamic framework, Luiss-X.ITE is playing a trail-blazer role;  

  • boundaries between hard and soft sciences are blurring thanks to the new technology pervasiveness that forces innovation leaders to adopt a growing amount of new technologies together with behavioral and social innovation. Within such an evolutionary path, the anaerobic pace of technology transformation is sustainable only if consistently supported by transformational social science research outputs. Luiss-X.ITE, thanks to its multi-disciplinary scholars and multi-methodology research experts aims at providing firms and institutions with transformational research.

Custom and Transformative Research Projects

X.ITE provides guidance and support for businesses and institutions' leaders through actionable research on how to manage market innovation and organizational changes mediated by technologies. In this perspective, X.ITE serves as a «knowledge transfer office» for «pure & applied soft science», as well as an «open source» for innovation and experimentation at the ​​intersection between marketing, decision science and technology.
X.ITE develops transformative research across four phases: (1) Analysis of the transformative dynamics of markets and organizations with an epistemic approach; (2) Partnerships with and for institutions and organizations; (3) Rigorous application of theory and research methods; (4) Transformation by Sharing Research Experience and Experimental Management.

Business Community Research Agenda

On a yearly base X.ITE designs and shares with Business Community Members a research agenda, and on a rolling base the main research outputs are presented. The research agenda highlights the latest advancements in scientific academic research and emerging technological trends. 

The Research Team, together with Business Community Members, discuss major new theories and identify the key topics that should be explored in order to generate relevant and insightful research.

The Research Agenda informs a call for research proposals after which Luiss-X.ITE funded research methodologies and findings are presented and discussed with Community Members. 

X.ITE Research Storm 

An annual event, generally scheduled in late October/early November bridges Luiss-X.ITE Faculty members and Business Community members in a "Luiss-X.ITE Research Storm". 

During the Research Storm, Luiss-X.ITE Faculty members presents advances in academic research on relevant topics (see Business Community Research Agenda). 
A discussion with Business Community members follows with the aim of establishing research priorities, which will inform the call for research proposals.  

The Luiss-X.ITE Research Storm hosts a session devoted to presentation and sharing of research outputs, relevant for Business Community members. 

X.ITE Talks

Two/three times per year Luiss-X.ITE hosts prominent speakers from top international universities presenting advanced marketing models and cases within inspirational talk sessions. 

By attending X.ITE Talks, business members have the opportunity to scout new ideas and competences, to discuss major new theories and methodologies, to develop new relationships, sharing innovative experiences and widening their view on how technology is reshaping markets, organizations, individuals and institutional behaviors.
