IXXI is not a lab, but a light structure that favors interdisciplinary research to model complex sytems such as biological or social systems, technological networks…
IXXI uses four steps to help creating interdisciplinary teams :
- Animation of the community through workshops, seminar, IXXI-days to promote discussions between disciplines
- Support emergent projects : two calls per year (spring – falls). This is an easy (but small) financing to support emergent projects/events without disciplinary barriers
- Hosting researchers that are at the heart of the community through their scientific fields. Presently, we host D-NET team from Computer Science Lab at ENS de Lyon, who focuses on the dynamics of social and medical networks, members of the European project DYNANETS and the COSMO start-up (links to be added).
- Teaching : IXXI has created a Master (2nd year) on “modeling of complex systems”, which is a common option for students in Masters of mathematics, computer science, physics and biology.
