  1. Complexity: FET project factsheets

    When many simple systems start to interact, anything can happen. In complex systems, even if the local interactions among the various components may be simple, the overall behaviour is difficult and sometimes impossible to predict, and novel properties ma ...

  2. Information & Modeling: FET project factsheets

    Information, knowledge and models are three steps along the way to understanding the weather, the physiology of diseases, or the economy. As systems become more and more complex we need better tools to capture the information, to extract the knowledge, to ...
