Bridge ICT & Social Sciences
Creating and reinforcing synergies between ICT and the Social Sciences: this is the first challenge of the FuturICT 2.0 project. In an era of grand social challenges, the integration of these two areas has become a necessity for facilitating a fruitful co-evolution of Information and Communication Technology systems and Society.
Within FuturICT 2.0, data from the “ICT world” will be leveraged to develop models of techno-socio-economic systems. In turn, insights and results from these models will inform the development of a new generation of socially adaptive, self-organised ICT systems.
The challenge of bridging ICT and Social Sciences will be assessed through a number of joint initiatives from researchers in the two fields, including open research calls, publications and visiting positions.
