Abstract

FOIST is an acronym that in Italian stands for Formation, Oc-cupation, Information, Territory. It is now a social science laboratory operating within the Department of Economics, Institutions and Society at the University of Sassari (Sardinia, Italy). It is directed by sociology professor Alberto Merler since its foundation, back in 1977, as a documentation centre open to both academic and non-academic users and covering such themes as social policies and services, education, school, train-ing, social work, non profi t, and others.
Besides that documentation service, FOIST’s main activities concern promoting and running theoretical and empirical re-search with a strong engagement in positive social intervention. That is why its extensive name is presently the equivalent in Italian of “FOIST Laboratory for social policies and formative processes”.
