From Facebook to the iPhone and from the human brain to viral videos, networks are pervasive to our modern society. But what does it mean to be connected, and how can one harvest its benefits, while avoiding its pitfalls?
Network science is the study of how questions of this sort can be tackled in a tangible and objective manner. A celebrated feature of the field is its capacity to transcend domains of expertise, providing a truly interdisciplinary approach to problem solving. As such, aspects of robustness, fragility and cascading effects can be explored in a wide range of domains, ranging from system architecting and design to general finance and management.

Based on network theory, we have developed a range of tools that assess the likelihood of risks arising either on a project or on an industry basis.
Did you know that network modelling can be applied to an entire organisation or even a whole industry?
Complexus enables the quantitative assessment of project complexity, a highly sought but currently elusive aspect across a wide range of frameworks.
Systema assesses project systemic risk, supplementing traditional project risk tools (e.g. Critical Path analysis, PERT etc.). Its uniqueness lies on the fact that the tool only requires readily captured data (e.g. MS Project files), providing added value for the client.
Epidemica transforms the finance industry into a network and allows us to identify the probability of systemic risk materialising, highlighting which firms are responsible for or highly sensitive to systemic risk.
