Digital Inclusion and Poverty

The world around us is digitizing at lightning speed. The internet offers many opportunities to take steps forward. In terms of work, social contacts, education or health. Especially now in corona time. However, for people who have less at their disposal, this is not so obvious. They do not always have the means or possibilities to use the digital infrastructure. While they could benefit relatively much from this. The ING Netherlands fund subsidizes the researchers of the Center for Digital Inclusion (University of Twente) for more research into this. At the beginning of 2022, they started developing an approach that enables people with few financial options to participate digitally and thus improve their social position.
