The Network Analysis Laboratory (NAL) was established as an organizational unit of the "Cognitione" Foundation.

 

Our vision

 

We believe networks are part of our reality. They permeate science, technology, business and the economy, which we can analyze through the prism of the network of relationships, interactions and cause-and-effect relationships occurring between given actors (nodes) of the network.

 

Our mission

 

The Network Analysis Laboratory creates and disseminates knowledge and application (implementation) recommendations in the field of solving social and economic problems at the micro, meso, and macro level through the prism of a network of relationships based on the division of tasks, knowledge, resources and creating value based on synergy. In addition, our mission is to implement international research projects supporting the development of science and education for the sustainable development of local and global society. We want to stand out through cooperation with people and organizations with passion for spreading knowledge and science, who want to make real changes in the world around us, especially in developing countries, where access to knowledge and science is often difficult. We are characterized by high quality of cooperation and provide services, based on trust and ethical behavior. We are accompanied by an international group of experts specializing in inter alia in analyzing and solving complex decision problems based on network analyses.

 

Our aims

 

In the Network Analysis Laboratory, we spread cooperation by connecting various economic, scientific, and research organizations with specialists in various fields to look at emerging economic, social, and economic problems in a global, holistic and interdisciplinary way. We initiate cooperation between scientific and research centers in developed and developing countries, which will enable the dissemination of knowledge and science.
