 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The multidisciplinary Research Group on Law, Science, Technology & Society (LSTS) was created in 2003 as an
independent entity within the Faculty of Law & Criminology at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). With more
47 researchers at all levels of experience, LSTS has become a prominent European research institute in the area
technology regulation. LSTS has a well-established reputation in research concerning privacy and data
an area where the work done by LSTS researchers is highly influential. Other research areas at LSTS concern the
impact of technologies and surveillance on fundamental rights in the Information Society, Intellectual property
rights as they relate to the use of ICTs, the changing nature of law (digital legal theory) and the role of law in
relation to science, technology and politics. LSTS researchers operate the Brussels Privacy Hub
(www.brusselsprivacyhub.org), an internationally focused privacy research centre and the Privacy Salon, an NGO
aiming at public awareness of privacy and other social and ethical consequences of new technologies
(http://www.privacysalon.org/). As part of the LSTS, researchers operate the Health and Aging Law Lab (HALL,
https://hall.research.vub.be/en/) which excels in multi-disciplinary themes linking health and aging to issues
as privacy and data protection; the Cyber & Data Security Lab (CDSL, https://cdsl.research.vub.be/) which aims
explore all legal aspects of cybersecurity and information security; and the Brussels Laboratory for Data
& Privacy Impact Assessments (d.pia.lab, http://dpialab.brussels), which connects basic, methodological and
applied research, provides training and delivers policy advice related to impact assessments in the areas of
innovation and technology development. To the extent needed, the core team can also draw upon the expertise
further staff members as well as the general resources of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
