Modeling Approaches for Sustainable Urban Development
- Chief Scientist, Veolia Environment
- External Professor, Santa Fe Institute
Helping decision-makers influence long-term sustainable development choices for urban regions is a huge challenge. Complex-systems modeling, based on field expertise and well-defined problems, can be a useful approach to understanding and predicting big trends in the long-term behavior of urban systems. In this talk, Michel Morvan will demonstrate how complex-systems modeling has been adapted and used for urban systems.
Michel Morvan is a chief scientist at Veolia Environment where he is responsible for corporate strategies towards sustainable cities. He also serves as the president of the Scientific Committee of The CoSMo Company, a software and service startup he co-founded that specializes in complex-systems modeling.
