Several fields already active in such terrain (for instance, interdisciplinary investigation in information (BITrum and ISIS), System science and Cybernetics -BCSSS and Group of Cybernetics at ULE-, Ecology and Sustainability -ULE, HM, BCSSS-, Information Society -BITrum, ISIS-, Education -ULE-) would constitute fields for development of the proposed project. Some activities carried out along 2011 and 2012 constitute preliminary actions for demonstration and development of the initiative (e.g. the International Workshop on Information and Systems, Munich 18/1/12, the international meeting and summer course on "Social Networks: from indignation to change (ethic, aesthetic and politic aspects)", León 21-23/9/12).
