NAF-Biz NY invites you to a seminar


A seminar on how complexity science is applied to the problems of government, business and economics, seeing systems not in equilibrium, but in motion, perpetually constructing itself anew.

Thursday, November 16, 2017
5:00 – 8:00 PM



A slow-motion revolution has been occurring in science over the past decades–and will likely continue into the rest of the 21st century. Stephen Hawking has coined it the century of complexity. Governments, companies and NGOs have to act in a highly connected and diverse world–a globalized and digitized world. In other words: they have to find their way in a complex world. At this seminar, two experts in the field of complexity and economics will address how we can deal with complexity in government, business and other fields, bringing clarity to complexity.

Madeleijn van den Nieuwenhuizen


The evening will be presented by NAF-Fulbright Alumna 2016/2017, Madeleijn van den Nieuwenhuizen.
