After 15 years of its existence, IFISC can point to a proven track record of impactful research. The previous 2018-2022 MdM award has significantly enhanced the institute's capabilities, as demonstrated by an approx. growth of 30%. Our goal for this new MdM award is a further step-change in IFISC's status as an internationally recognized unit of excellence in complex systems and information processing. To this end, we embrace the following main strategic objectives for the period 2022-2025: O1- Our approach of addressing the science of complex systems from the physics perspective gives us a unique opportunity to contribute to challenges identified by the European Community and the Spanish government for the next decade. To this end, we will carry out an ambitious adaptation of our research lines. These include social and socio-technical systems, digitalization and artificial intelligence, life, and health, as well as climate and environment, as detailed in our entangled-3-pillar structure below. Building on our physics expertise, we will take a cross-disciplinary transversal approach, enhancing our research capabilities and potential for innovation in complex systems. O2- To attract further talent, in particular internationally, and to deliver a training program of the highest quality for students and researchers at all levels. We anticipate 2 further permanent scientists and 1 permanent technician in the next months. Our ambition is a trajectory of controlled growth while improving gender balance and diversity. O3- To cement IFISC's position as a recognized international beacon for complex systems science, with an active visitor program and wide-reaching participation and leadership in international projects. We would like IFISC to be a continuous generator of new good practices, and to act as a role model for promoting equality, diversity, career support, and dignity at work.
