Northeastern University has expanded its world leading Network Science Institute to the university’s campus in London in a move that will establish a new European hub in the fast-growing research field of network science.
As part of the expansion, the university has recruited a team of researchers to join its faculty in the United Kingdom. The group hails from some of the best academic institutions in Europe and their work will help scale Northeastern’s network science research globally, particularly in the areas of human health and global security.
“As a university we have a vision to be a global actor” and to build a research institute that reflects that, says Alessandro Vespignani, director of Northeastern’s Network Science Institute and Sternberg Family Distinguished University Professor.
“You can augment the global reach and influence of the Network Science Institute,” Vespignani says.
