Just married! CEU & CSH
Central European University becomes 11th member of the Hub
We are happy and proud to announce that the Central European University, which recently moved from Budapest to Vienna, is now officially a member of the Hub!
“There has been a lively exchange of ideas and scientists between the institutions for a long time already,” says János Kertész. János works at the Department of Network and Data Science at the CEU and has been a member of our External Faculty since the early days of the Hub.
Various projects with CEU-CSH collaboration are already underway, for example in the area of stress testing the economy (where researchers are using data-based models to investigate what happens when parts of the economy are shocked or collapse). Other joint topics include the modeling of spreading dynamics, be it the spread of a virus, innovations, or opinions.
We will also further develop data-driven anti-corruption models together, a subject that is a special expertise of Johannes Wachs, who changed from CEU to CSH last year as a CSH Faculty member.
“The Hub is a unique place,” says Michael Ignatieff, rector and president of the CEU. “The combination of excellent people, a very broad research spectrum, and the open atmosphere is highly attractive and has made the CSH one of the world’s leading institutions in complexity research in just a few years.”
And Hub president Stefan Thurner is “excited about the next excellence boost at the Hub.”
For now, the big celebrations have to wait. Corona of course…
But it will take place, promised! In 2023 at the latest, when the biennial “flagship” conference of the global network research community, the NetSci, will take place in Vienna—brought there by another joint effort of CEU and CSH.
