Abstract. We established a Complex Systems Digital Campus e-laboratory “Open Systems Exploration for Ecosystems Leveraging” in view of re- designing sustainable social-ecological systems related to food produc- tion ranging in food, health, community, economy, and environment. 6 initial projects have been set up, namely Synecoculture, P2P Food Lab, Open Systems Data Analytics, The Bee Laboratory, Open Systems Sim- ulation and One-Health Food Lab. As a transversal methodology we apply open systems science to deepen scientific understanding and for better management. The projects involve scientists, engineers, artists, citizens and are accessible for open collaboration inside and outside of the e-laboratory. This article summarizes foundational principles of these projects and reports initial steps in operation.
