The Center is a vibrant and dynamic research environment and gathers experts from the philosophy of science, logic, moral philosophy, psychology, neurosciences, the history of science, and computer science.

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action is a funding scheme that supports researchers’ mobility. Postdoctoral Fellowships may last 24-36 months, involving a research project, advanced training, and knowledge exchange at the host institution.
