Institute for Scientific Interchange Foundation
The ISI Foundation – Institute for Scientific Interchange – was established in 1983 by the Regione Piemonte. Its core mission is the promotion of scientific research within the international cooperation, fostering the creation of research groups and of innovative and interdisciplinary labs, with a special focus on the science of complex systems. The science of complexity pursues, among others, the aim of creating a new connection between basic and applied science in helping to face and solve some of the essential issues of contemporary society. The challenge of complexity has now become a sort of paradigm of modernity, and Torino and Piemonte have nowadays become one of the most important international locations in such fundamental research. Thanks to the support of the public founding members and to the continuous cooperation with the CRT Foundation (in particular with the Lagrange Project) and the Compagnia di San Paolo, the ISI Foundation was able to tackle, by new frontiers research projects, bold paths, settling itself among the main research centres for complexity. The success and richness of the research work at the ISI Foundation resides primarily in the “human factor” encompassing the scientific and personal value of its scientific and administrative staff, as well as the complex web of human relations that everyday brings the institute to life.
