About Us

Web Science Institute - Research, Education and Enterprise

The World Wide Web has affected the lives of everyone, even those who have never used a website, by transforming governments, businesses, civil society and individual lives. The Web Science Institute (WSI) is located at the intersection between technology and society, researching how the Web is changing the world and the world is changing the Web.



Our vision is that the Web Science Institute will be a globally recognised authority on the development and social impact of Web technologies, offering analysis, tools, data and advice to government, business and civil society.
