The Complexity Science Hub Vienna: the focal point of complexity research in Europe

Understanding complexity to tackle present and future challenges

In 2016 the Complexity Science Hub Vienna was founded with the vision to become the focal point of complexity science in Europe. The aim is to provide a creative and scientifically thriving environment free of bureaucratic constraints. Public outreach activities are designed to share the excitement of complexity science with a wider audience.

The Hub is a node in a network of international partner institutions, including the Santa Fe Institute, the Complexity Institute of Nanyang Technological University Singapore, Arizona State University, and the Institute for Advanced Study Amsterdam. Through this network a lively exchange of researchers, question posers, students, and postdocs is envisioned, enabling the most important ingredient to tackle the challenges we face: the evolution of fundamentally new ideas.
