Additional comments

The KNOW (Knowledge Complexity and Memory) team works in two overlapping areas: broadly defined studies on knowledge and science - both historical and contemporary, including data science, data and knowledge visualization, science mapping, network analysis. In turn, the studies on memory, starting from strictly humanistic research, open up to issues related to neuroscience, medicine, psychology and psychiatry, cognitive science. In both aspects, the comparative approach is essential, but also the starting point is significant - the specificity of Central and Eastern Europe as an area different from both Euro-Atlantic centres and postcolonial non-European areas. We form a team that uses modern research tools, exceeding disciplinary and disciplinary constraints, focusing on the problem-oriented research.
