Welcome to the LedgerbackØDCRC

LedgerbackØDCRC is a member-owned, self-directed research and education center for fostering collaboration between stakeholders and unifying the study of the internet and society (i.e., the network society).


We develop and provide open educational materials that provide background to our research and cover themes in the internet and society.


At the LedgerbackØDCRC, we seek to unify the study of the internet and society by bringing scholars together from a wide range of disciplines to conduct interdiscplinary research so we can understand how science, technology and society interact with each other.
