Dear friends and fellow researchers,
The majority of young people in Germany are committed to a social cause. This is what the recently published Third Engagement Report by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth shows. One finding that especially excites us is that almost half of young adults use the internet and digital media for their charitable work.
While our daily lives are slowly getting back to normal, our research activities and projects continue to centre on the online sphere. What long-term effects can we expect from the corona tracing app? How do scientist envision the future two decades from now? And is there a way for European platform capitalism to be sustainable? The last months have proven that scholarly knowledge is a decisive variable. Let’s work on an inclusive and complex future together!
Stay tuned & stay safe,
