  • Problem Solving
  • Multilingualism


  • The Training of Complex Problem Solving (TRIOPS): The TRIOPS project provides a framework and first software for the training of Complex Problem Solving (CPS), which adapts features from already existing training approaches of neighbouring fields of CPS but also entails new features unique to CPS.
