Mission: The Santa Fe Institute is an independent, nonprofit research institute founded to pursue multidisciplinary research and for the synthesis of knowledge about systems that span more than one of the traditional disciplines. Science at SFI is broadly collaborative and done by mixtures of resident and visiting scientists from different institutions and disciplines. Most of its research focuses on studies of what has come to be known as complexity and complex adaptive systems. SFI's structure has created a model that is being increasingly emulated in scientific research communities.
