During my residence I'll try to finish the book that I have been cooking for over a year. It's a book where it's going to explain from a first-person perspective my experience as director of a local social innovation laboratory (Coboi lab), in its different stages, over a period of two electoral terms. It will be the first publication to be written from first person perspective, and I am very excited to be able to conclude it or, at least, make a great step forward to the final edition during this residence. I hope that this book will be reasonably relevant in the sector or, at least, interesting for professionals in the field and curious.
