Results of ERC Advanced grant project CUHOBICOL of Prof. Mireille Hildebrandt published, including the creation of a new journal: Cross-Disciplinary Research in Computational Law.

In 2018, Prof. Mireille Hildebrandt, affiliated with Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the iCIS institute in the Faculty of ScieMirnce of the Radboud University, was awarded an ERC Advanced grant for her research project proposal CUHOBICOL (pronounce cubicle). PI Hildebrandt conducted the research together with her team with expertise in different disciplines from January 2019 to January 2024. CUHOBICOL is cross-disciplinary involving both law and computing science in light of the transition from text-driven law to code- and data driven law. Its main goal has been to rethink legal method in a way that sustains the checks and balances of the Rule of Law. 

Prof. Hildebrandt has made the results of CUHOBICOL available on a dedicated website https://www.cohubicol.com/ with, on top of classical papers and monographs, the Typology of Legal Technologies https://publications.cohubicol.com/typology/ to create a hands-on experience with new legal technologies for the interested. 

Additionally, earlier this week a special issue of the new scientific journal saw the light under the auspices of the CUHOBICOL project, namely the Journal of Cross-Disciplinary Research in Computational Law, containing 8 positions papers by global thought leaders including e.g. computer scientists such as Arvind Narayanan and Denis Merigoux, see https://journalcrcl.org/crcl/issue/view/7.
