In late 2014, a group of 7 independent researchers investigated from different disciplines and perspectives the model of Cooperation Science developed by Alessandro Merletti De Palo based on an extensive literature review about Cooperation and its many different frameworks. The model was confirmed by the investigations results, and the subsequent paper was accepted at the M.I.T. 2015 Collective Intelligence Conference in Santa Clara, organized by the University of Michigan - Ann Arbour, with the presence of Facebook and of the Google vice-president Regina Duncan.
"Cooperacy" then became a legal entity with the official registration in Milan by the co-founder Ilario Tito in 2015.

We presented the model the same year at the OuiShareFest in Paris, the leading worldwide event about the emerging phenomenon of the Sharing Economy. We refined our approach with semantic clusters and presented it during the IASC conference in Bologna organized by LabGov. We’ve been invited in the first International Conference on Positive Peace held by the Institute for Economics and Peace at Stanford then we presented the model in 2016 at the g0v Conference in Taipei and finally in Germany, Hamburg, at the official Conference for Coproduction systems. We presented our preliminary Cooperation Context Index at the 2016 Collective Intelligence Conference at the New York Stern School of Business and we got accepted in Macao PLS-SEM conference with the updated index this year. We spread through very different backgrounds, from the institutional MIT, Michigan Ann Arbor and New York Stern, to the governative g0v or the specific statistical approach of Macao PLS17, from the festival style of OuiShare to the serious context in Hamburg, from conferences with partners like Google and Facebook to those with IASC or the same g0v.

These events are symbols of the research and impact effects of our investigation: enabling better relational intelligence and developing productivity through cooperative and mutual satisfactory processes.

The model of Cooperation developed by Cooperacy, based on rigourous scientific confrontation on the cooperation theory literature and different - still ongoing - research streams, has gathered so much interest in such a small amount of time that different european and international Universities and Institutions, organizations and even business events and courses are supporting, establishing a partnership or disseminating it.

Our project abstract proposes a definition of cooperation based on an interdisciplinary constructs model, being compared on international indicators PLS analysis, social representation, Facebook groups real and relational benefits analysis, game theory dual benefit analysis and subsequent mathematical model theorization.

Our model is therefore currently being described qualitatively and quantitatively at a scientific level, never the less we cooperate with common people coherently with our model that is based on the Diversity Theory. Everyone is invited to participate and cooperate with us with mutual enjoyment.
