FLAG-ERA FP7/H2020 FuturICT 2.0 (2017-2020) "Large scale experiments and simulations for the second generation of FuturICT".

The project was inspired by the FuturICT Pilot, and its goal is to find ways to understand and manage complex, global, socially interactive systems. From financial crises to climate change, from crime and conflict to resource management: the world is currently facing grand social challenges that need to be addressed with new approaches and tools. FuturICT 2.0 aims to create an incentive system to take on some of the major challenges faced by modern society. To manage scarce resources and support endangered people and communities, powerful global information systems need to be built, based on big data and artificial intelligence. FuturICT 2.0 will bring together a large array of the best academic minds in fields such as social science, complexity science and computational science. FuturICT 2.0 will promote disruptive innovation to move towards a more resilient and adaptive society. Adopting a decentralized and collaborative approach, involving methods such community-based decision-making, crowdsourcing and citizen science, to adapt to social needs and address unforeseen societal challenges.

LZP-2020/2-0397 LIASAM (2020-2021) "Latent Impacts on Digital Technologies Sustainability Development Assessment".

Insufficiently justified introduction of digital technologies can not only cause losses to investors, but also have a negative impact on economic development and public welfare in general. The development of a technology during its life cycle is influenced by a number of hidden factors that are usually underestimated when assessing the sustainability of a technology. The aim of the project “Latent Impacts on Digital Technologies Sustainability Development Assessment (LIASAM)” is to create new knowledge and technological insights in the field of Electrical, Electronics, Information and Communication Technologies by developing and improving digital technology sustainability assessment methodologies and technologies. Added knowledge on the impact of latent and stochastic risk factors and their assessment will provide more efficient and accurate modelling of sustainability development forecasts for new technologies, which will save both developers and investors financial resources and assess the potential competitiveness of new and existing technologies in the market. The introduction of sustainable digital technologies will increase the efficiency of production and services and, in the long run, reduce the impact of crises and pandemics on national GDP growth.
