Welcome from the Director

Thank you for visiting the website of the Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation.

We are working to establish WICI as the preeminent centre for complexity studies in Canada and a world leader in this exciting new field of research. We are especially interested in encouraging complexity researchers to develop a common and integrated language of concepts and theories to enable better communication among complexity science’s many sub-fields. And our tag line—“Applying complexity science to real-world problems”—is not just an empty slogan. We are focused on applying the insights of complexity science to solve the most pressing problems facing humanity, from global financial instability to climate change.

Join our mailing list (subscription box on the bottom left of the homepage) if you want to hear more about WICI’s events and work.

Please enjoy your visit.
