We Are Europe's Research Center Translating Data into Solutions for a Better World

About Us

Complexity Science Hub – independent science for a better understanding of our complex world.

We are addressing some of society’s biggest challenges by extracting meaning from the enormous amounts of data representing our planet in its various dimensions: the economy, human migration, health and disease, climate crisis, social values, urban development, conflict, and more.

Our research approach lets us see the world in a new way – as interconnected, dynamic, co-evolving, extensive networks – that allows us to understand these complex systems and identify their weaknesses and strengths. Using this knowledge, we can make evidence-based statements about how complex systems will respond to change and propose realistic interventions to move them in a positive direction for society. In other words, we want to find solutions for a better world.
