Summary on Grant Application Form
Complex systems are those in which local interactions between many simple elements give rise to complex behaviour at the level of the whole system. Understanding these systems is a challenge faced by many different scientific disciplines, from neuroscience and ecology to linguistics and geography. The aim of this project is to bring together internationally leading UK researchers from a range of relevant scientific disciplines to meet and collaborate with experts in appropriate computational and mathematical modelling methodologies, in order to achieve a step change in our understanding of the way in which complex networks underlie and influence the behaviour of real-world complex systems. What unites this diverse group of researchers is thus a focus on the use of simple models to study complex networks. The proposed project will achieve its aims through holding a series of focused research workshops and smaller one-on-one meetings that will allow ideas and expertise to be developed and shared. This process will be managed towards the generation of around five well-specified inter- and multidisciplinary complex networks research proposals, which will be submitted to the EPSRC 12 months into the cluster's lifespan.
