In doing so, DSRG funded research works provide inputs in ensuring that the advancements in communications infrastructure and services contribute to the inclusion and participation of all segments of the population in the realisation of a Digitally Connected and Informed Society (Digital Society).
2021 RESEARCH FOCUS
For 2021, MCMC is seeking a combination of both OPEN and GUIDED research projects to clarify regulatory and developmental gaps and inform actionable outcomes in the following two categories:
Digital Citizenship and Cyberwellness research is aimed at clarifying gap areas influencing participation, positive uptake and wellness in an increasingly digitally dependent world and Digital Inclusion research is aimed at gap areas related to factors that impede equality of access and challenge the paradigm of ensuring that no one is left behind or is deprived of digital connectivity and its benefits. 2021 RESEARCH TITLES
