Short Description of the Organization / Department
Digital Economy Lab, also known as DELab UW, was established in 2013 with the support of a grant from Google at University of Warsaw. Since then, it has become a leading interdisciplinary program in Poland, bringing together scholars and researchers from diverse fields related to the digital economy, society, and globalization, including economists, sociologists, and lawyers. With an interdisciplinary approach and openness to new methods, we are revolutionizing the teaching process at the University of Warsaw. We conduct both scientific projects and engage in multidimensional cooperation with businesses and the public sector, researching the key challenges arising from the development and implementation of digital technologies. DELab is part of the Global Network of Internet and Society Research Centres.

● CoMobility (Co-designing Inclusive Mobility) is a transdisciplinary international research project in which attitudes and behaviours related to mobility are analyzed, with a particular focus on alternatives to the use of private cars. In the co-creation process barriers and opportunities for different mobility choices are identified and interventions planned. CoMobility benefits from a 2.05 million € grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants. For more details see: https://comobility.edu.pl/en/homepage/
