  • The Social and Organizational Analylis research group (ASO) was created in the Business Management Department of University Rovira i Virgili in order to develop social science analysis and research from a interdisciplinar perspective in two main fields: Organizational phenomena and Social issues.

    The Catalan Government recognized ASO as a Consolidated Research Group in 2009 and 2014, which distinguish the quality of projects and scientific outputs. Currently, the group is focused on a process of internacionalisation: we cooperate in scientific and education projects with other universities and research centers from Spain, Europe and Latin America.
