Exploring the Meaning and Experience of Digital Exclusion Among At-Risk Groups
Request for Tender for Research
In 2018, ‘Building Ireland’s First Digital City: Limerick Digital Strategy (2017 – 2020)’ and accompanying Smart Limerick Roadmap was launched by Limerick City and County Council. This strategy aims to lay the foundation for the ‘Sustainable Smart Limerick City Region and Communities’ – a Limerick that uses digital technologies and embraces new work practices to empower communities, create better services, accelerate sustainable social and economic growth and to improve the quality of life for all.
The Digital Inclusion Working Group is one of four working groups established to oversee the implementation of the Limerick Digital Strategy with ‘Digital Inclusion’ identified as a key theme of the strategy. A Digital Inclusion Needs Study to identify key gaps and disparities in technology usage and digital skills needs in urban and rural communities in Limerick City and County is a named action in the strategy.
PAUL Partnership Limerick, on behalf of the Digital Inclusion Working Group, is now seeking Tenders from suitably qualified researchers to undertake research to inform future actions and strategies.
The overall aim of the research is to investigate the meaning and experience of being digitally excluded in today’s society and to identify appropriate responses at local, regional and national levels.
