Socio-economic complexity


The increasing availability of large-electronic databases on a variety of socio-economic systems has opened, in recent years, new scientific perspectives and potential applications. The main purpose of this centre will be to identify mechanisms driving the future evolution of the systems, from systemic risk in financial networks to information diffusion in social networks, price dynamics in the sharing economy and mobility.

Keywords: Social networks, Finance, Time Series, Data Mining, Information Diffusion, Mobility
