Research group TOR 

The Research group TOR (Tempus Omnia Revelat) was established in 1982 by a group of researchers of the Department of Sociology at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Free University of Brussels), with a goal of researching time-use and temporal structures in society. TOR is involved in time-use research for more than 30 years.

Throughout the years TOR has widened its scope of studies from only time-use to cultural studies in general. Today TOR conducts fundamental and applied research concerning a wide scope of topics, such as time-use, cultural trends in Flanders, media, youth culture, education, life-course and social communities. Thanks to its comprehensive expertise and experience, TOR is involved in many large-scale inter-university and policy-directed projects.
