El contenido de este perfil es responsabilidad exclusiva del docente investigador.

He is the founder and Principal Investigator at InterMedia Social Innovation (Italy), an international research center focused on leadership, entrepreneurship, social innovation and youth development (http://www.intermediaconsulting.org/).

He is co-Investigator in four international research projects:
1. ‘Science and Religion: Exploring the Spectrum of Global Perspectives’ is a major international research project that seeks to build an understanding of the social and cultural contexts of public perceptions of the relationship between ‘science’ and ‘religion’ across all religious and non-religious groups. Based at the University of Birmingham, and involving partners from nine universities worldwide, it builds upon a previous project, ‘Science and Religion: Exploring the Spectrum’, which ran from 2014 to 2017.
2. Hemispheric Social Entrepreneurship Collaborative Center (HSECC). Based in University of Miami (US) it is an applied – research center initially set up to leverage social entrepreneurship concepts and principles to be a transformative driver for change in hemispheric societies; identify opportunities to enact social entrepreneurship in different sectors and mediums; determine governance framework for developing a comprehensive and sustainable social entrepreneurship model; presents a practical outcome for HUC project that focuses on entrepreneurship and innovation; builds on existing research and training initiatives. Prof. Rivera is conducting the first international survey on global Latino companies (multilatinas) and their social impact on development.
3. Inclusive Digital Social Innovation. The applied research project based in IAE Business School (Argentina) will develop and evaluate a participatory methodology based on inclusive models for the digitization of social enterprises, mini and small businesses, especially those run by women, that take into account the cultural and relational dimensions of people. In addition to being an interdisciplinary project with regional possibilities for inclusive development that will solve problems generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, it will work with virtual learning methodologies that will use the opportunities of new technologies, while involving university students in the training of entrepreneurs in key areas such as strategic planning, transformation and digital marketing and leadership.
4. Technology and personal well-being. The global health crisis caused by COVID-19 has confined people to their homes and triggered the use of the internet and digital entertainment. Leaded by the ‘Young people in transition’ team based in University of Navarre (Spain), the project is exploring the impact of these very special circumstances on the personal well-being of citizens. Currently, universities from 10 Latin American countries collaborate in the study with the University of Navarre.

He was main researcher for Protagonist Children (www.ninosprotagonistas.org), an applied research prevention program funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to prevent the involvement of young people in gangs.
