The assumption is the recovery of an ethical dimension, but research has a duty to promote a technical and managerial culture, which is currently lacking, and to develop tools that facilitate informed consultation among the players. Even at international level, priority should be given to acting on organizational process models that highlight transdisciplinary collaboration principles in real time and throughout the entire development of an intervention programme.
