Seven teams from the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK are establishing cross-cultural comparisons within Europe on how and why the perception, use and allocation of time are affected by personal levels of digitalisation and cultural norms, and how this impacts on quality of life. This will be achieved through a series of studies using interviews, online questionnaires, psychophysiological recording and real-time behaviour analysis.
Start date: 28 October 2022 – Project duration: 36 months – Project budget: € 1 561 444
Who funds the study? This study is funded by CHANSE and has been allocated a budget of €1,561,444.
The main goal of the CHANSE initiative is to launch a transnational call for collaborative projects focused on the topic of Transformations: Social and cultural dynamics in the digital age.
