Mapping the landscape

Good luck. The academy is the wild wild west” – A colleague, after we told him our ambition to map the landscape of institutes, grants, organisations, and events in our field.

Where or to whom do I turn if I need technical assistance, e.g. on databases or search engines? Which grants are available, specifically for computational social or behavioral research? What is the Institute for Advanced Study, and how can they help me? 

Conducting successful research requires knowing where to turn for help and collaborations. Science doesn’t happen in silos, but builds on networks of individuals, organisations, funders, knowledge hubs and infrastructure. But as individual researchers, we do not have an overview of these networks and entities. In fact, no one has.

CSBS makes an attempt to provide such an overview (‘mapping the landscape’) for the computational social and behavioral science landscape in Amsterdam. It will not be exhaustive, especially not in these early days, and its success depends on your inputs. Please add to this page directly, or drop an email to Javier or Anna.

                      Rather than providing quick answers, FreedomLab offers a space for free thought where public and private decision makers can playfully navigate uncertainty through our team’s transdisciplinary research, speculative methods and imaginative future scenarios. Together, we identify and develop transformative opportunities for business and society.
