Producing a new generation of highly computational natural scientists and tool builders able to apply novel approaches to tackle fundamental problems in natural science.

About 2020 Science

The emphasis of the 2020 Science programme is on producing a new generation of highly computational natural scientists and tool builders able to apply novel approaches to tackle fundamental problems in natural science. The scientific remit of the programme is broad, covering a wide range of challenging problems in the computational modelling of naturally occurring systems, spanning biology and medicine and ranging from molecules to systems to organisms to ecosystems, and the interaction of each with their environment (from extracellular environments at the molecular level to anthropogenic and earth system environments at the global scale).
