The Sussex Centre for the Individual and Society (SCIS) is an innovative new research centre, independent of the University of Sussex but run by Sussex PhD students and located on campus.

"SCIS is working at the same rigorous intellectual level as the world's foremost universities and research centres. Differently from these, SCIS will however not be bound by prevailing paradigms of social and political discourse. SCIS will shift paradigms," says Alexander W. Higgins, Researcher and co-founder of SCIS.

SCIS aims to create a worldwide inter- and transdisciplinary network of highly original researchers, particularly in the social sciences and humanities, and artists – a network of people who feel that the current higher education system stifles their abilities and potential.

SCIS enjoys the academic support of an outstanding International Advisory Board that includes world-renowned academics such as Prof John Friedmann (British Columbia, UCLA), Prof Calestous Juma (Harvard, Kennedy School of Government), Prof Ernesto Laclau (Essex, Northwestern, New School for Social Research), Prof Francis Schüssler Fiorenza (Harvard Divinity School), and Prof Michael J. Watts (Berkeley).

SCIS' Senior Research Associates are full professors at the universities of Liverpool (Prof Joseph V. Femia) and London (Prof Alexander García Düttmann).

"It is surprising that a concept used as frequently as 'the individual and society' should not have given rise to as many research institutes at universities all over the world. In fact, there appears to be no research centre at any university in the world that applies itself to looking at the individual and society in breadth and depth and from a variety of angles," says Erich Kofmel, Executive Director of SCIS.

Research in SCIS is being undertaken around three research clusters – study of the individual, study of collectivisms, and development studies. The latter focuses on studies to do with the impact of "the individual and society" in social and economic development and comparative and cross-cultural research into these and related concepts.

SCIS' independence from the University – while giving members and associates the freedom to pursue daring and unusual research projects outside the prevailing academic discourse at universities – means that we are not being funded by the University or any research councils. SCIS therefore has to raise funding from private and institutional donors and companies.

SCIS requires a broader base of funders and significant financial means to further strengthen SCIS, create employment and bursaries for research students and young researchers, develop existing and new research programmes and projects, explore research areas and possible cooperations, organise events, publish working papers, a regular journal and books, and generally raise SCIS' profile among students, academics and the public in the UK and worldwide.

SCIS (scis-calibrate.org) is a non-profit organisation (Company Limited by Guarantee, registered in England, Company No. 5850511). No shares have been issued and no dividends will be paid to members. Any profits, or other income, will be spent in promoting the company's objects.
