Board and Contributors

Vision's organizational model is no less innovative than the kind of projects and outcomes it proposes.

As opposed to traditional brick-and-mortar research centres, Vision does not have a number of dedicated scholars. Vision's “staff”, in fact, works in different professional environments (media, universities, management, government) and lives in different cities (mostly in London, Paris, Washington DC, and major Italian ones). Everyone on the team brings to Vision the richness of their different points of view.

They use Vision as a platform to put together expertises and develop joint projects.
