COLIBRI

In an increasingly complex world, people seek simple answers. But are simplicity and complexity the exclusive ends of an incompatible spectrum? Even simple math can already describe our reality: Only 5 characters, e=mc², were powerful enough to change our image of reality forever. Deciphering the complexity that arises from simple interactions in a living world, ranging from small chemical molecules up to global markets is a crucial endeavour towards a well-being of society. Ignoring complexity features is dangerous (market crisis, epidemics, ...) and detecting common patterns in complex systems allows the needed knowledge-transfer between disciplines and can stabilize dynamic complex systems. Although the KFU Graz has many excellent researchers approaching the complexity of living systems, a coordinated approach towards grants, public recognition, common teaching and student attraction is missing.
