What We Do:

ENDL (European Network on Digital Labour) is a multidisciplinary network of researchers from fields as diverse as media studies, geography, sociology, law, economics. Since 2019, it also hosts the INDL (International Network on Digital Labor) initiative. Read more here!

ENDL members organise and facilitate research seminars in universities and think tanks all around Europe.
We hold international conferences on digital labour, ethical challenges of online research, and the political economy of platforms.
The ENDL research community organises workshops to coordinate and exchange best practices.
Sometimes we meet for a drink and a chat — and updates about our ongoing projects.
Our doctoral colloquia are open to MRes, MPhil, and PhD students in different stages of their research.
