Center for Information and Communication Research CIC is one of the youngest research centers at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). It was started in February 1997 with funding from the Research Board KFB/VINNOVA. CIC was set up to pursue business research on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT), and is geared toward bridging the gap between market-oriented vs. technological research in the area. Due to CIC’s limited size, an active exchange within international networks has been seen as a critical extension of CIC’s internal work. One of these research collaborations is within the network of the Global Mobility Roundtables. CIC is a research center at SIR, Stockholm School of Economics Institute for Research. SIR is a national research institute for the economic sciences, with a focus on Business Administration in the broadest sense.
