Complex systems are characterized by their transversality. They affect many fields of study. This interdisciplinarity is reflected in the work areas of SCCS. These are very broad, ranging from the analysis of the impact of climate change to transport or even computational biology
|Agriculture and climate change
Agriculture is a strategic sector not only because the feeding of mankind depends on it also because it remains the largest employer. In the twenty-first century it will remain key by the new challenges that will face: a growing population and the climate change.
The SCCS research group actively collaborates with other centers and institutions.
Eco-innovation is most commonly related to technological change in production processes and products. Furthermore, eco-innovation can be considered a change in the behaviour of individual users or organisations. Eco-innovation can also be considered as a strategic perspective to renew the business. In practice, these dimensions are often intertwined, which is why we attempt to address them together in this research –an approach that has not been sufficiently considered before.
|Ecosystem services and health
The natural environment is the foundation of human health, as clean water and air, recreation and appropriate environmental management are all crucial for public health.
|Management and Economic policies
The Great Recession has shown that Economics needs urgently a profound change in its paradigm.
Migration flows are one of the most important social issues today.
Tourism is a very important activity from the economic point of view, but also very fragile. Their interrelations with transport and, above all, with the social aspects make their management very complex.
The analysis of transport networks is one of the most dynamic fields in the Complexity Science.
