The imec-SMIT-VUB research group was founded in 1990 and conducts fundamental, applied and contractual research on IT, media and policy.
Our focus is on research related to innovation, policy and socio-economical challenges. To this aim, imec-SMIT-VUB conducts user research, policy research and business analysis, making use of both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. The research group consists of 2 research programs (‘Media & Society’ and ‘Data & Society’), which both are subdivided in three specific units.
