# Stability and robustness

This research pole will deal with the concept of stability and robustness in various fields of research, aiming to identify its key structural determinants. In ecology as in financial networks, catastrophic changes in the overall state of a system can ultimately derive from how it is organised — from feedback mechanisms within it, and from linkages that are latent and often unrecognised. The change may be initiated by external factors, but is more usually triggered endogenously.
