Who are we?
The World Complexity Science Academy (WCSA) is a think-tank whose motto is “research determines policy, which determines politics.” WCSA is also an organizational systemic hub of a network of world-class complexity system scholars, professionals, entrepreneurs, and policymakers for the diffusion of the “Complex System Approach”.
The “Complex System Approach”, inspired by Jean Piaget’s, Heinz von Foerster’s, Ernst von Glasersfeld’s and Niklas Luhmann’s systemic constructivism, is meant as an interdisciplinary paradigm and an applied strategic toolkit for addressing the main global challenges and opportunities of our time — in terms of world-order policy-modeling and policy-making.
As a think-and-do-tank, WCSA aims to facilitate the worldwide sharing of high added-value knowledge and the free circulation of intellectual and strategic capitals at a global scale, thereby facilitating transnational and supranational win/win policies.
Initiatives we drive:
Law architecture design and policy modeling to promote the university-government-business triple helix in a globalized and cosmopolitan global-player scenario. Empower and develop a teaching-researching-disseminating triple helix in which diffusion takes different shapes from public engagement to strategic consulting, from mentoring to spin off start-ups.
Concepts and Principles
Evolution of life goes from the very micro (the cell) to the very macro (the universe). The complex systemic vision also supported by dynamic multidimensional processes (Norbert Elias, Ervin Laszlo) provides new evolutionary chances and challenges for the human species. It is a political, economic, social, legal, and technological world order, which is the domain of WCSA research and policy, shaped by a complex system approach with its interdisciplinary paradigm and applied tools. The policy core is the evolution of citizenship on an interconnected planet, specifically in the configuration of Hypercitizenship with its four (4) dimensions: entrepreneurial, societal, scientific, and cosmopolitan.
Producing valid and viable large-scale knowledge is the key evolutionary scale of our times and WCSA proudly plays the game.
