The 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics, Giorgio Parisi, recognised the research work on complex systems such as the flight of birds and the climate, among others. Complex systems are those that contain a multitude of elements that are interrelated and that as a whole cannot be understood through a reductionist view of all their elements separately.
As an informal conversation, you will experience a debate on the experiences of two women scientists, researchers at the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) who have worked on complex systems for a large part of their careers. Where can we find complexity in our environment? How can we understand complexity better? How can we study complex phenomena? What does it mean to research in such a varied set of contexts?
