Projects in Social Simulation



E-Coop Project (2016-2018)

The e-Coop project is funded by FCT-Portugal and aims at developing large-scale computational  tools towards the understanding of situations in which individual goals and norms collide with collective endeavors, in the particular context of global governance, climate change agreements and complex political networks.

The Semira Project (2011-2012)

Semira  (Simulating the EMergent Impact of Regulations Across countries) was an European funded project under the Complexity Net framework, exploring the interaction between emerging normative behaviour and new regulations in different countries. The goal is to support the preparation of new EU regulations through a computational framework. Two types of agent-based simulation tools will be developed based on it. One tool will validate the theoretical framework with actual people and the other will do large scale simulations based on emergent behaviour.
