The Field of Excellence Smart Regulation explores topics related to social and technological innovation: Rapid technological developments (e.g. information technologies, Big Data, networking, Industry 4.0, algorithms, blockchain, self-driving cars, robots, (green) AI and synthetic biotechnology) are generating disruptions in the existing legal, economic and social environment. This gives rise to new questions, both with regard to existing and future models of regulation, behavior control and the creation of incentives to influence the decisions of individuals, companies and society.
In order to develop new and innovative solutions the Field of Excellence Smart Regulation was established at the University of Graz on 1 January 2019. Today, the interdisciplinary research team consists of 33 Principal Investigators and 20 Associate Members of the Faculty of Law, the School of Business, Economics and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Natural Sciences as well as the Faculty of Catholic Theology.
The members of Smart Regulation are participating in competitively acquired, successful interdisciplinary research projects and have strengthened over the years their large network of national and international partners institutions.
