We continue to work on the Project as our Research Initiative.

Description:
FuturlCT was a FET Flagship project initiative proposing to use collective, participatory research, integrated across the fields of ICT, the social sciences and complexity science, to design socio-inspired technology and develop a science of global, socially interactive systems. The aim of the initiative is to bring together, on a global level, big data, new modelling techniques and new forms of interaction, leading to a new understanding of society and its co-evolution with technology. It will place Europe at the forefront of a major scientific drive to understand, explore and manage our complex, connected world in a more sustainable and resilient manner. 

The unifying goal of the FuturICT initiative is to integrate the fields of information and communication technologies (ICT), social sciences and complexity science, to develop a new kind of participatory science and technology that will help us to understand, explore and manage the complex, global, socially interactive systems that make up our world today, while at the same time paving the way for a new paradigm of ICT systems that will leverage socio-inspired self-organisation, self-regulation, and collective awareness. 

FuturICT will bring together, on a global level, Big Data, new modelling techniques and new forms of interaction, leading to a new understanding of society and its co-evolution with technology. It will place Europe at the forefront of a major scientific drive to understand, explore and manage our complex, connected world in a sustainable and resilient manner.
