The BCSSS fosters research in the field of systems sciences and supports systems thinking. Its operations are not for profit. It was founded in 2004 when a group of scholars met in Vienna to make an attempt to save the Bertalanffy archive for the public that appeared in the United States for auction. It’s an association by Austrian law. Its domicile is Vienna.
We carry out or promote research projects on systems science problems and organise or support conferences like the European Meetings on Cybernetics and Systems Research We contribute to the cooperation around the research and development of cybernetics methods and techniques to manage complex systems, lectures and scientific staff mobility.
We are sponsoring scholarships like the Ludwig von Bertalanffy PhD Scholarship and prizes like the Ludwig von Bertalanffy Young Scientist Award and the Ludwig von Bertalanffy Award in Complexity Thinking, publishing the book series “Systems” in co-operation with the School of Systems and Enterprises at Stevens Institute of Technology and College Publications, the open access online journal “systems. connecting matter, life, culture and technology” and Research Papers. We are hosting the Bertalanffy Archive as well as other inventories in the context of systems theory.
