Ongoing Research projects


Emergent social, technical and ecological complex systems

P.I.: Pere Colet, Maxi San Miguel, Raúl Toral
The project ESoTECoS constitutes an approximation from the perspective of the physics of complex systems to the societal challenges within the field of Social Changes and Innovation. The project background lays in ...


Lagrangian studies of Oceanic Processes: connectivity patterns, barriers to transport and marine populations

P.I.: Cristóbal López
The general objective of this proposal is the study of Lagrangian transport in the oceans with tools borrowed from nonlinear physics, and their influence on marine ecosystems.


INCT in Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Studies in Ecology and Evolution

P.I.: Emilio Hernández-García
IN-TREE goal is to develop projects about ecological and evolutionary research questions from an interdisciplinary approach (based on integrating projects of mathematical/computational/statistical modeling and epistemology/ethics) and a transdisciplinary approach (based on integrating ...
