The WeNet Survey starts

The “WENET: Internet of us” innovative survey is part of the project’s pilots, developed in two phases and involving 7 universities among the project’s consortium partners.

The first phase, conducted through an online questionnaire, is currently in action, involving the University of Trento (Italy), the National University of Mongolia, the University of Aalborg (Denmark), and the Universidad Católica “Nuestra Señora de la Asunción” (Paraguay). This first phase will be further extended to the London School of Economics (UK), Jilin University (China) and Amrita University (India).

The second phase of the survey will take place in November, through an app called i-Log, which will be installed on the students’ phone and will track their activities. The overall aim of the survey is to capture the diversity of lifestyles and cultural consumption styles of students as they are distributed in their daily routine. This will allow both to improve the knowledge of the student’s life and to promote the design of new technological tools and targeted support policies. The ultimate goal is to empirically understand diversity in order to empower it.

During the first two days, almost 2000 students from all over the world connected to our questionnaire.
