What is Research?
Research is a process of knowledge construction. Its main goals are to generate new knowledge and / or corroborate or refute pre-existing knowledge. It's basically a learning process in both perspectives: for the individual person and for the society in which the research is performed.
Project proposal Þ seeking partners Þ inventory of relevant literature and field experience Þ qualitative and / or quantitative analysis Þ development of findings and results Þ publication and dissemination Þ discussion of results and impact management.
Research produces specific knowledge and relates objective and subjective aspects of reality that surround the object to be investigated. The investigation thus enables optimization and continuous improvement of theories, paradigms and processes, leading to the constant development of an organization or society.
