The centre provides the framework and infrastructure for engaging with complexity systematically and in depth. The core activity of the Centre is the development and dissemination of knowledge. Through its outputs the Centre contributes to a wide array of disciplines and serve to integrate these disciplines on a theoretical level.
Complexity theory provides a language which facilitates transdisciplinary interaction and opens up new opportunities for collaborative work. The Centre allows for already existing expertise to be consolidated and developed by doing research, collaborating with peers both nationally and internationally and by teaching and supervising postgraduate students from various disciplines.
