The Konstanz School of Collective Behaviour is organized by the Cluster of Excellence Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour (CASCB) at the University of Konstanz. The CASCB creates a global hotspot for the integrated study of collective behaviour across a wide range of species and scales of organization. With English as the working language, it is a global hub for scientists seeking to create a synergistic, interdisciplinary environment for the study of collective behaviour.

Establishing collective behaviour as an integrative field, the CASCB brings together international researchers from biology, computer science, social psychology, physics, mathematics, and behavioural economics to work closely on addressing common questions across species boundaries. Konstanz is also the home of the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior that focuses on the study of collective behaviour, making Konstanz the epicentre of the study of collective behaviour in Germany.
