Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS)

Le Centre Internet et Société

At the intersection of disciplines such as sociology, law, history, economics, political science, information and communication sciences, informatics and engineering sciences, the CNRS CIS (Center for Internet and Society) intends to build independent and interdisciplinary research and expertise. The CIS’s research endeavors contribute to enlighten the major technical controversies and the definition of contemporary policies related to digital, to the internet, and more broadly to informatics, and hosts the Laboratory for Open Science in partnership with French Ministry for Research.

Role in the project

CNRS is leading the work of defining the Societal Impact Indicators and the data, methods, and tools necessary to estimate them (WP2). Additionally, CNRS is running the France case study: research data and knowledge use / uptake in non-academia.
