Social Inclusion through the Digital Economy

The SIDE project is officially launched tomorrow, and is already producing some impressive work, ranging from digital jewellery that can bring tangible benefits for people dealing with dementia, to  research assisting older drivers in driving safer for longer, to the Ambient Kitchen.

The centre is directed by the impressive Paul Watson with a very strong team, and is one of the largest research projects of its type (ie not Medical etc research).  Its overall aim is to tackle social exclusion  by making it easier for people to access the life-changing benefits offered by digital technologies.
