Research Groups are constituted by several people who are gathering to carry out some researches on specific subjects. They formulate their objectives and hypotheses, define a scientific methodology (quantitative or qualitative), establish a medium and long term strategic plan to work together.

Thus, they produce knowledge results on the subject debated.

A research group is composed of minimum three individuals who work deliberately with an organized plan or agenda of research projects and programs for a sufficient time in order to produce knowledge results.

The main purpose of  these actions is to acheieve visible quality results. They intend to arrive at tangible and verifiable results which are the consequences of the projects and investigative activities properly expressed in a sufficiently formalized action plan (projects). Each of these activities is registered in the curriculum of every researcher and then in the research groups.

The work results of reflection and research groups will be presented at the Congress, published and disseminated by the Association.
