NTU to establish Singapore as Asian hub in complexity science research
Date:2/27/2012

Asia will receive a boost in the field of complexity science through a dedicated programme by Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

NTU's Complexity Programme aims to concentrate talent and resources in Singapore to become the Asian hub in the global network of scientific institutes that focus on complexity science and its applications through genuine interdisciplinary collaboration.

Complexity science refers to the scientific study of complex systems systems with many parts that interact to produce global behaviour that cannot be explained in terms of interactions between the individual constituent elements. It is inherently interdisciplinary and it involves and affects all scientific disciplines. Complex systems include ecosystems, cities, brains, the internet, and many more.

The knowledge and its applications, that complexity science is expected to deliver is crucial to providing solutions to the grand challenges confronting humanity, such as urbanisation, sustainability, poverty, energy, water, health, climate, security, innovation and the impact of technology.

The programme, a culmination of the university's on-going efforts in interdisciplinary research in complexity science, is now seeing its first major conference, titled, 'More is Different', with 350 local and international participants attending.

The three-day conference, held from 27 to 29 Feb 2012 at the Nanyang Executive Centre, NTU, will see various speakers touching on topics such as the rise and evolution of economics; the organisation of biological systems without a centralised command structure; understanding brain functions; and geodesy changes in the Earth's shape and gravity field.

Professor Bertil Andersson, NTU President, said NTU is already addressing the world's grand challenges in its five peaks of excellence: Sustainable Earth the 'Mount Everest' of peaks, followed by Future Healthcare, New Media, New Silk Road, and Inno
