Webinar & Networking Event “Societal Transformations in the Digital Age”
Are we sufficiently aware of the impact that social platforms and new media have on our behaviour and society? Are we able to tackle the spread of (online) disinformation, which not only undermines our trust in the political institutions of democracy but also could have much wider effects on decisions concerning our health and wellbeing? Can we guarantee the protection of citizens’ fundamental rights and data privacy in the online space? Are we ready to prevent the growing digital divide, the polarisation of the public debate, the radicalisation and the extremism? Those and more questions are on the agenda of the event “Societal Transformations in the Digital Age”
This event is jointly organised by four Brussels-based liaison offices: Lithuanian RDI Liaison Office (LINO), Netherlands house for Education and Research (Neth-ER), Polish Science Contact Agency (PolSCA) & Slovak Liaison Office for Research and Development (SLORD).
The aim is to bring together the expert scientific community working on issues related to the impact of digital technologies on society. This event is open to researchers, research and project managers, public authorities or anyone else interested in the topic. It will be followed by informal networking on Wonder.me platform.
The event will be held on 22 of May. The program, registration and other information is available on the site of LINO office.
