N.E.T.S. Mediterranean Graduate School of Applied Social Cognition
The Mediterranean Graduate School of Applied Social Cognition is a Cyprus Neuroscience and Technology Institute initiative, currently in the process of the final stages of its foundation. The School will specialize strictly at the interface of the 4 sciences that the Cyprus Neuroscience and Technology Institute has accumulated expertise.
The acronym of the school, N.E.T.S. stands for:
N.E.T.S. aspires to pioneer worldwide in offering cutting-edge advanced graduate programs that lie at the interface of four areas of significant importance (i.e., Meta-Systems Neuroscience, Instructional Systems Design, Complex Systems Science as applied for social change and peace building, and Information & Computer Technologies) but at the same time equip its graduates with knowledge, expertise, tools and motivation to apply towards creating a better world. The design of its curricula is grounded on the premise that we ought to re-define the methods, purpose, and tools we use in research, in education and in social sciences in light of relevant and pressing social, economic and political priorities.
To put together a team of ca. 20 highly committed PhD students, capable and intelligent individuals who will work at the interface of the four sciences focused to develop the science required to achieve a paradigm shift and a major leap forward in our world.
- N.E.T.S. philosophy is based on the original aims of the Cyprus Neuroscience and Technology Institute.
- Grounded on the realization that survival of humanity will depend on our ability to design conscious evolution.
- Designing and execution of studies and research programs with future orientation in areas related to human brain-modern technology-social transformation with the purpose of inventing new methods and tools to facilitate conscious societal evolution.
