The FuturICT flagship proposal intends to unify hundreds of the best scientists in Europe in a 10 year, 1 billion EUR program to explore social life on earth and everything it relates to. The FuturICT flagship proposal will produce historic breakthroughs and provide powerful new ways to manage challenges that make the modern world so difficult to predict, including the financial crisis.

The FuturICT Knowledge Accelerator is a previously unseen multidisciplinary international scientific endeavour with focus on techno-socio-economic-environmental systems.

The ultimate goal of the FuturICT flagship project is to understand and manage complex, global, socially interactive systems, with a focus on sustainability and resilience. Revealing the hidden laws and processes underlying societies probably constitutes the most pressing scientific grand challenge of our century and is equally important for the development of novel robust, trustworthy and adaptive information and communication technologies (ICT), based on socially inspired paradigms.

We think that integrating ICT, Complexity Science and the Social Sciences will create a paradigm shift, facilitating a symbiotic co-evolution of ICT and society. Data from our complex globe-spanning ICT system will be leveraged to develop models of techno-socio-economic systems. In turn, insights from these models will inform the development of a new generation of socially adaptive, self-organized ICT systems. For a wider description of FuturIct, see http://www.futurict.eu

The Polish Hub of FuturIcT has been created to promote the FuturIcT aims in Poland and to coordinate efforts of Polish researchers involved in Project activities. The Hub associates specialists in ICT, physics of complex systems, mathematics, computer Engineering, social and economical sciences and is organised around the Warsaw University of Technology and University of Warsaw. It is supported by the Section FENS 'Physics in Economy and Social Sciences' of Polish Physical Society.
