What is the Centre for Digital Citizens?
The Centre for Digital Citizens (CDC) is an EPSRC funded project addressing the emerging challenges of digital citizenship.
The CDC will take an inclusive, participatory approach to the design and evaluation of new technologies and services that support ‘smart’, ‘data-rich’ living in urban, rural and coastal communities.
Core to the Centre’s work will be the incubation of sustainable ‘Digital Social Innovations’ (DSI) that will ensure digital technologies support diverse communities and will have long-lasting social value and impact beyond the life of the Centre.
The Centre for Digital Citizens’ pilot projects will be spread across the urban, rural and coastal geography of the North East of England, embedded in communities with diverse socio-economic profiles and needs.
