RESEARCH

On our way

Neuro science
System approach
Action learning

-

If a new idea does not sound crazy, it is not an innovation. It needs to stretch your thinking otherwise you will only get what you had before.

– Thomas Lehr & Louis Klein, EUSG

GOOD RESEARCH IS ALWAYS A CO-CREATION

The EUSG Research Labs

The European School of Governance is a curator for leading European research of diverse fields with a transdisciplinary focus. Based on neuro science, systems’ approaches and action learning the various EUSG research labs integrate perspectives that allow to understand the inter-dependence, multi-causality and poly-centricity of today’s challenges and solution spaces. Currently five research labs address the most pressing challenges not only for European research.

 

OUR LABS

The European Democracy Lab
had been the most successful of the EUSG hubs so far generating a wealth of public attention for innovation, change and improvement in politics. Ulrike Guérot, the director of the European Democracy Hub and professor at the Danube University of Krems in Austria, shifted the political agenda in Europe with here works on the utopian vision of the European Republic.

European Democracy Lab Projects
The Systemic Change Lab
is dedicated to the state-of-the-art of change management based on systems approaches and cybernetics. In close cooperation with the Club of Rome, the International Society for the Systems Sciences (ISSS) and the World Organisation for Systems and Cybernetics (WOSC) the Systemic Change Hub ventures the challenges of the digital transformation for socio-technical systems on our planet.
The Project Governance Lab
builds on the rich experience in leading project, portfolio and programme management in business and industry. Inspired not only by the good examples of the Norwegian ministry of finance concept programme and the Major Projects Authority of the British cabinet office the Project Governance Lab promotes knowledge transfer and further developments for the public realm. The Project Governance Lab works closely with the International Project Management Association (IPMA) and the International Center for Complex Project Management (ICCPM).
The Strategic Foresight Lab
pursues the question what good or excellent foresight actually is. Surely it needs thorough foresight to identify the option and solution spaces, their efficacy and robustness. Yet, there is little knowledge about evaluation not only results but the actual approaches of foresight practices.
The Good Governance Lab
addresses not only ethics and philosophy of management and governance. Good Governance can be regarded as a practice with a quality. Hence, on the one hand the Good Governance Lab cooperates with the World Ethos Institute for ethics and philosophy and on the other hand the Good Governance Lab looks deeply into the examples for good governance and management practices, as our partner the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI).
The Cultural Health Lab
explores the interplay of health and culture. The immediate aspect is to realise to which extend individual health depends on cultural contexts. Next is to acknowledge that context is an important variable for any cure or healing process. And finally culture as such can be more or less sane or more or less patholigic. Apithology, i.e. the studies of the generative causes of health and wellness in living systems, sits in the focus of our cooperation with the International Society for Naturopathy and Cultural Health (IGNK).
