About this Project
This multinational project investigates fundamental changes in the contemporary experiences of later life, at the intersection of digital infrastructures, place and the experience of ‘being connected’. Researchers associated with the project are exploring and theorizing the role of a variety of digital communication devices in later life. The research also has a practical goal of making findings actionable, involving older people, policy makers and other stakeholders in processes of co-design.
