Money talks? The impact of corporate funding on academic research in information law and policy

Concerns about the corporate funding of scientific research, and about the presence of corporate sponsors in scientific events are not an exceptional issue in the academic field. For decades, scientific domains like medicine, climate research, health and nutrition science have been struggling with controversies and dilemmas around the direct and indirect impact of corporate funding on the quality of their scholarship, integrity, independence, both actual, and as perceived by others. The event has been organized by the Institute for Information Law, University of Amsterdam, as part of the European Hub of the Global Network of Centers for Internet and Society (NoC).

About the European Hub of the Global Network of Centers for Internet and Society (NoC)

The European members of the Global Network of Centers for Internet and Society (NoC) have launched the European Hub in October 2017 to support scientific discussion and cooperation between internet researchers in Europe. The hub is being created as a regional chapter of the NoC that congregates members of the Network, as foreseen in the NoC Roadmap 2017/18.

The aim is to coordinate internet research centers in the whole of Europe in order to strengthen European internet research on an international level. European cooperation on internet and society research is one of the hub’s key concerns, as is the opportunity to leverage synergies between research projects.

At the heart of the hub’s work is independent and interdisciplinary research about the opportunities and challenges of digital technology, innovation and European society. The first steps will be to create a common European research agenda, regional workshops and conferences as well as developing guidelines and ethical standards for internet research. “Artificial Intelligence” is the first common research focus.

For the first two years, the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) will take the lead in the coordination of the hub. Alongside the newly founded European hub, the Digital Asia Hub has operated in Hong Kong since 2015.
