CHAOS – International Research and Education Programme on “Complex Human Adaptive Organizations and Systems”, University of Perugia - warmly welcomes Dr. Steven Hartman, the new prestigious member of its international Scientific Committee. A warm welcome also from our Scientific Director Piero Dominici.
New scientific projects and collaborations are already emerging and being defined.

A significant part of his role as Executive Director is based at Arizona State University’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory. He is also Visiting Professor in the Faculty of History and Philosophy, University of Iceland. Hartman has held full professorships and senior faculty positions at several universities, including Uppsala University, Stockholm University, Linnaeus University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. He directs the Humanities for the Environment Circumpolar Observatory group based at Stefansson Arctic Institute in Iceland and for more than a decade he led the Nordic Network for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies.
Steven Hartman’s work addresses integration of the humanities in global change research, and collaboration among social and human scientists, artists, education specialists and civil society in efforts to meet sustainability challenges of the present and foreseeable future. Transdisciplinary approaches to convergent knowledge production unify many of his scientific, educational and collaborative projects with societal stakeholders. Hartman has led/co-led projects funded by the Swedish Research Council, The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences (Riksbankens Jubileumsfond), The Fulbright Foundation and Nordforsk, the joint research council of the Nordic Council of Ministers. He is currently active in projects funded by the Belmont Forum, the U.S. National Science Foundation, and the EEA and Norway Grants programme.
