Why modelling science?

Mathematical models of scientific activity have been proposed during centuries. There seems to be a certain resonance between progress in mathematical modelling techniques and proposed models of science. This talk describes a specific kind of modelling science rooted in theories of self-organization, evolution and complexity as developed by phycisists. It addresses the challenges for the modelling building processes as well for its implementation. The talk also reflects about the epistemic function of models.
