¿Qué es el Cisot?

CISOT is made by researchers in the fields of psychology and sociology, with a special dedication to the study of the human and social dimensions of sustainability, risk and safety, energy and technology. Main areas of research are: a) risk perception and social acceptance; b) organizational and safety culture; c) human factors.

The research carried out by CISOT not only aims to provide analytical information to current debates on the social impact of technologies, sustainability policies, and safety, but also to be embedded in the processes of design and implementation of public policies, providing especially relevant data for its implementation.
