It is well known that if a group von Neumann algebra of a (nontrivial) discrete group is a factor, then it is a factor of type II_1. During the talk I will answer the following question: which types appear as types of injective factors being group von Neumann algebras of discrete quantum groups (or looking from the dual perspective - von Neumann algebras of bounded functions on compact quantum groups)? An important object in our work is the subgroup of real numbers t for which the scaling automorphism tau_t is inner. This is joint work with Piotr Sołtan.
