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) launched the European Hub in October 2017 with the aim to  support cooperation between internet researchers in Europe and to strengthen European internet research on an international level. The Hub serves as a regional chapter of the NoC, as foreseen in the NoC Roadmap 2017/18.

Independent and interdisciplinary research on the opportunities and challenges of digital technology and innovation stands at the core of the Hub’s work. Potential endeavors embrace the creation of a common European research agenda, regional workshops and conferences, as well as the development of guidelines and ethical standards for internet research.
