NWO VENI Grant for Zoé Christoff

05 November 2020

Zoé Christoff, Rosalind Franklin Fellow and member of our Multi-Agent Systems group since September, has been awarded the prestigious VENI grant by NWO.

*Social Networks and Democracy*
How do social networks impact democracy? In the age of ‘fake news’, this question is societally more relevant than ever. This project develops a general theory of the interaction between networks and democracy, tests its results on the ‘liquid democracy’ voting system, and provides concrete recommendations that probably safeguard democracy.

The complete list of awarded VENI projects (accidentally Zoé’s affiliation is named as ‘Philosophy’ there, but we’ll ask them to correct that): https://www.nwo.nl/en/researchprogrammes/nwo-talent-programme/projects-veni/2020
