CitaDyNe is now a H2020 research proposal in FET GSS (Global System Science)

This proposal was submitted in the H2020 in the GSS call. It involves 10 teams from all over Europe.

Abstract:

Systems of cities and innovation network dynamics determine how “business clusters”, such as the Silicon Valley, emerge and develop. These clusters are at the core of EU growth policies because they increase productivity. However, there are no current tools to address the complex multi-scale and multi-dimensional socio-economic interdependence of these developmental processes. These are urgently needed, in order to construct foresight scenarios determining which combinations of policies, at which scales, and which actors, would result in highest innovation.

CitaDyNe offers a radically new multiplex systems perspective on socio-economic cluster dynamics. Nested global networks of firms, research collaborators and inventors, will be considered in terms of spatial, social and cognitive (knowledge) proximities. Such proximities reveal how economic clusters induce cascading effects, policy diffusion across sectors and scales, and both bottom-up and top-down processes.

Using an extensive compilation of geo-referenced collaborative, economic and technological data, CitaDyNe will create an evolutionary platform offering a general framework of main actors and factors by matching structured and unstructured continuously updated data. Numerous simulations will generate complex multi-layered network models based on theoretical foundations of social science and statistical physics.

Designed together with policy maker and stakeholder associations, gamification strategies and dynamic visualization of policy actions will make stakeholders aware of policy effects on innovation systems, to allow proper evaluation of policy decisions. Through grids of basic policy tools, stakeholders will be able to create various scenarios, “tweak” numerous factors and assess final outcomes. This role-playing will leverage the collective imagination, stimulating exchanges within and between heterogeneous communities. CitaDyNe will thereby elaborate new analytical theories about emergence of innovation.

An incredible map of which countries e-mail each other, and why?

The Internet was supposed to let us bridge continents and cultures like never before. But after analyzing more than 10 million e-mails from Yahoo! mail, a team of computer researchers noticed an interesting phenomenon: E-mails tend to flow much more frequently between countries with certain economic and cultural similarities.

ORBIS: the Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World

The system calculates the distance from a city to another one, according to faster path, or lower cost.

http://orbis.stanford.edu/

Go to “Mapping ORBIS”, It draws the path and create many different maps and graphs (in “Map gallery”). It’s a pity that the Emperors did not have this system :-)

ART AND GEOGRAPHY

Three years ago, a friend of mine who is a genius artist (Catherine Bolle), asked me to do geography on her biography. She told me many things about her life, during some few sundays afternoon in the Beaurivage Hotel in front of the lake in Lausanne. It took one year to build the data and think about the pictures to produce. Then to build them and interpret with a nice text.
