Andrea Fronzetti Colladon

I am a university professor and a business advisor and coach. My research dives into the meaning of connections as a driver of value and intrepid innovation.



Unraveling the mysteries of human communication and social interaction.

I lead the Business and Collective Intelligence Lab at the University of Perugia and am part of the ICKN core team at the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence. My research team is inspired by wild and challenging ideas and strives to create a more just and promising world. We combine methods from network science, natural language processing and machine learning with theories from the social sciences, psychology, humanities and linguistics to advance knowledge and discovery about management and human behavior. I invented the Semantic Brand Score and we also specialize in brand and business analytics.

We work with colleagues from leading international institutions, such as the MIT, Northeastern University, Université du Québec à Montréal, ISTAT, ENEA, Mount Sinai Hospital (NY), Politecnico di Torino, Free University of Bozen, and many others.
