The Collective Intelligence Unit is founded on external funding from both public and private institutions and funding bodies, and is one of the pioneering research centers in Europe in the emergent science of collective intelligence. The unit has grown steadily since its establishment in 2016 due to increasing interest and support from both the private and public sectors.
CIU’s research agenda is to theoretically and empirically study the collective intelligence of multinationals, public organizations, citizens and societies, and its impact on advanced policy- and decision-making. The unit also studies the relationship between collective intelligence and financial performance, regional GDP and national GDP. The studies integrates different software aggregation mechanisms to explore collective intelligence while combining collective intelligence with Big Data and AI/swarm intelligence.
