The CRIDS was established in 2010 at the University of Namur through the merging of three existing research centres in social sciences and information technology: the CRID (Computer Law Research Centre, founded in 1979), the CITA (Interdisciplinary Technology Assessment Centre, founded in 1988) and the GRICI (Interdisciplinary Communication and Internet Research Group, founded in 2008). With more than 45 researchers, the CRIDS has added a multidisciplinary perspective to the renowned expertise of its three founding centres.
The CRIDS is divided into seven units, ensuring quality supervision of junior researchers by senior ones.
The Research Centre in Information, Law and Society (CRIDS) is currently made of 56 members: 14 academics, 32 researchers, 4 visiting fellows and 6 staff members. Since its inception, CRIDS members have authored more than 2500 publications.
