ICT for Development (ICT4D)

A focal question in our research is: how can ICT promote development? In this group, we engage in developing countries and regions, thus building global research collaborations. By development we mean human capacity building, which we see as the foundation for societal and economic development. We relate our work to development agendas in the countries in questions, e.g. national strategies for digitalisation or education; as well as global strategies such as UN’s Millenium Development Goals. We also emphasise, however, creating novel and emergent methods, theories and tools, both locally and in the global discourse. Head of tICT4D: Pär-Ola Zander.
