Grip on Complexity
Cars Hommes is a member of the programme committee that has written the paper “Grip on Complexity”. The paper offers a framework for a possible new transdisciplinary research initiative to address whether and how we can manage complex systems in society and science. A most pressing goal in our hyperconnected, networked world is to deal with the complexity we face and act in a complex and uncertain world. How do we get a grip on complexity?
The paper was presented to the Chair of the NWO Governing Board, Professor Jos Engelen, at a dedicated meeting on 18 September 2014. More information about the complexity programme.
