DELab UW – Digital Economy Lab was established in 2013 thanks to a grant funded at Warsaw University by Google. From the beginning, the grant agreement ensured that we retained our scientific autonomy, especially with regard to the choice of research subjects and the opinions we formulated. The grant helped us build institutional capacity, develop a competent team, and engage in networks of international academic and research collaboration.
Currently, DELab UW operates as an autonomous interdepartmental project, embedded in the University of Warsaw. It involves the Faculty of Economics, the Faculty of Sociology and the Faculty of Law and Administration.
