The Center for Mind and Culture works collaboratively with several other research institutions.

University of Agder

The University of Agder (UiA) is a public institution with an extensive research program, boasting state-of-the-art technology. Its interest in international collaboration and competition propels dynamic development with organizations like the Center for Mind and Culture.

CMAC works in collaboration with UiA on the MODRN project, creating simulations based on massive datasets. The input of an interdisciplinary team of experts allows researchers to envision Norway’s future and so better inform public policy proposals.

Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center

The Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center (VMASC) is an interdisciplinary research center at Virginia’s Old Dominion University. A global leader in visualization techniques, its mission is to create new ways to represent our world, both physically and socially. VMASC develops simulations that can drive real world change and answer some of humanity’s most complex and pressing questions.

CMAC works in collaboration with VMASC on a number of projects, including the Healing Causation Project, the Virtual Reality for Nightmare Disorder Project, Visualizing the Deep Past and the Global Religion Demography Project.

 John Templeton Foundation

The John Templeton Foundation supports Sir John Templeton’s vision to stimulate spiritual progress by supporting research that relies on science to unearth answers to humankind’s biggest questions.

The John Templeton Foundation generously supports several of CMAC’s innovative projects, allowing our researchers to further advance understanding of the world.
