Network of Centers

ODIPI is part of the Network of Centers (NoC), a collaborative initiative among academic institutions with a focus on interdisciplinary research on the development, social impact, policy implications, and legal issues concerning the Internet. This collective aims to increase interoperability between participating centres in order to stimulate the creation of new cross-national, cross-disciplinary conversation, debate, teaching, learning, and engagement regarding the most pressing questions around new technologies, social change, and related policy and regulatory developments.

NoC was launched in 2012 as part of the Symposium on Internet-Driven Developments:: Structural Changes and Tipping Points, hosted by the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard. ODIPI joined the Network of Centers initiative in 2023, whereas its sister institution IPI has been an affiliated institution since the inception of NoC.
