Nature is inherently coevolutionary and complex. Therefore, its fundamental understanding, analysis, modelling and risk assessment call for the development and implementation of advanced scientific methodologies that disentangle complexity and unravel hidden predictability in seemingly unpredictable phenomena.
At the Meteoceanics Institute, we develop cutting-edge projects providing sensitive scientific and technical solutions on coevolutionary dynamical system analytics, modelling, risk assessment and decision support for institutions operating in various sectors of activity, including environmental, naval, aerospace, energy and security. Moreover, we engage in fundamental research with complete scientific freedom, without the organisational constraints of classical academic or industry research units, and with the institutional security and independence of having our own legal identity.
The scientific advances conducted in-house go beyond the traditional stochastic-dynamic paradigms in academic literature, to unveil hidden mechanisms and design frameworks for a better understanding, analysis and modelling of complex problems affecting our world and ways of life. That places us in an unrivalled position to provide clear solutions to problems that until recently could only be tackled in a non-physical probabilistic manner.
Our methods have special relevance to an early assessment of non-recurrent or unprecedented critical phenomena, which are unpredictable by classical nonlinear techniques. In doing so, we provide the understanding and predictability necessary to efficiently provide robust decision support to agencies protecting the society and the environment. This is further assisted by our instrumentation ecosystem ranging from undersea to aerospace vehicles and onboard sensors and scientific payloads, providing an independent, self-reliant and coherent multi-scale multidomain operation.
At an academic level, our core activities range from the interuniversity chair in Physics of Complex Systems and Fluid Dynamical Systems to the Meteoceanics Doctoral School, with a synergistic link between frontier academic research and groundbreaking industry innovation.
Our academic and research activities are then further complemented with hands-on operation promoting cutting-edge scientific entrepreneurship along with sustainable development solutions aimed at helping local communities thrive, while helping nurture their natural and cultural heritage for generations to come.
