Researching at the Intersections of Law, Technology, Knowledge and Society

On 14 June 2019 the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies at the University of Warwick and the Research Group on Law, Science, Technology & Society at the Free University of Brussels organised a joint seminar. The day started with the question ‘how do, on the one hand, methodological and, on the other hand, legal aspects come together and/or interact in data-intenstive research in digital societies and cultures? In several sessions topics such as digital rights, transparency and reverse engineering were addressed.

The aim is to strengthen the collaboration between the two centers.

About the centers:

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) at the University of Warwick research champions innovative and experimental forms of knowledge production through a sustained focus on methodology, with current projects focusing on smart city research, machine learning, personalisation in medicine,visualisation, digital pay, environmental sensing, and real-world testing of intelligent technology.

The Research Group on Law, Science, Technology & Society (LSTS) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), is a research leader in legal and ethical aspects of digital transformations, with a special focus on issues of privacy, trust, security and democracy, and the Centre has recently led funded projects on accountability of machine learning, new sources of personal data and citizen profiling.
