Seven researchers from CFI participate in MODINET, a three-year research project on Media and Democracy in Network Society. MODINET is an interdisciplinary research project intended to explore the significance of globalisation and digital media culture for politics and democracy, for established cultural institutions and forms of expression, and for everyday life in the information and network society of the future. Around fifty social sciences and humanities researchers and PhD students from public and private research institutions tare are involved in MODINET.
MODINET is financed by a grant of 23.6 million kroner from the Independent Danish Research Councils as part of the program for ’Larger Interdisciplinary Research Groups’. CFI participants: Niels Brügger, Henrik Bødker, Jens Christensen, Niels Ole Finnemann, Per Jauert, Frands Mortensen and Anne Ellerup Nielsen (Jens Christensen later leaves the project, while Jakob Linaa Jensen joins).

The commission is described in a document dated March 19 2002.
