About us

The Unicist Research Institute, founded by Peter Belohlavek, is a global decentralized research boutique that has been, since 1976, a pioneer in researching the evolution of complex adaptive environments.

The discovery of the intelligence that underlies nature and its emulation, made sustainable evolution manageable. The applied research developed since 1976 was focused on individual, business, institutional and social evolution.

The Unicist Research Institute has an academic arm, a business arm and the Unicist School with more than 100,000 followers in 56 countries.


The Vision

The Unicist Research Institute develops solutions for adaptive environments and systems, by researching and managing their root causes. It is an organization of doers, managed by doers that works for doers.

The Mission

The Unicist Research Institute researches the root causes of the evolution of things, going from natural sciences to social sciences, to build reliable knowledge, structural solutions, systems and tools and to develop educational programs to foster the expansion of all types of organizations.

The Research

The paradigm shift introduced in sciences by the unicist epistemological approach expanded their boundaries, by developing the theoretical framework of complexity sciences to deal with adaptive environments without using palliatives to stabilize them.

The Academic Arm

The academic arm is a Business School that provides unicist business technologies to individuals in companies using a reflection driven educational model. These technologies are focused on strategic approaches to businesses and the management of the concepts and fundamentals to deal with the root causes of business processes.

The Business Arm

The business arm distributes the technologies, systems and tools developed at The Unicist Research Institute for companies worldwide. Its core business is the installation of cognitive systems with unicist artificial intelligence to manage adaptive business processes including strategy, business intelligence, marketing, management and people management.

The development of the epistemological structure of complexity sciences was applied from natural sciences to social sciences. This approach manages the unified field of complex adaptive systems defined by the ontogenetic maps of their concepts and fundamentals to generate value.

The research of adaptive environments is homologous to the research in medicine, which requires clinical trials to confirm the functionality of solutions. Peer reviews do not apply to research in complex adaptive environments. Only real applications are acceptable.

Unicist Artificial Intelligence

The development of the Unicist Artificial Intelligence, by a team coordinated by Diego Belohlavek, was the final step to manage adaptive environments. It allowed emulating the unified field of an adaptive environment using the ontogenetic maps of the underlying concepts and fundamentals and developing solutions that manage the root causes of the functions involved.


The Unicist Research Institute researches the root causes of the evolution of things, going from natural sciences to social sciences, to build reliable knowledge, structural solutions, systems and tools and to develop educational programs to foster the expansion of all types of organizations.

The Unicist Confederation is a multilocal-cooperative-confederation integrated by Partners, Associates and Volunteers that are led by a Partnering Committee integrated with Partners.

Partnering Committee

The Unicist Research Institute was a precursor of the 4th Industrial Revolution by developing solutions to empower adaptiveness, customer orientation, productivity and quality based on the available technologies. The installation of the 4th Industrial Revolution established a framework to be considered to build or sustain the competitive advantage whatever the market or environment.

The Unicist School

The Unicist School fosters sustainable growth based on the emulation of nature, by managing the unified field of adaptive environments and the root causes of things to develop structural solutions in the social and economic fields.
