Northern Australia communication analysis
The purpose of this project is to mobilise an emerging consortium of research and industry partners to investigate the impacts and relevance of digital inclusion for developing Northern Australia.
This project will bring together expertise and resources from universities and industry across Australia to explore key issues of social and economic inclusion in the context of digital inclusion. Through a co-design research approach involving knowledge transfer events and interviews with key stakeholders, the project will culminate in a white paper outlining a detailed road map for digital inclusion research, practice, and policy development for Northern Australia.
The project will impact on the following CRCNA objectives by:
- Improving supply chain efficiencies through building digital capacity at all stages.
- Generating new jobs through helping to facilitate Northern Australia’s transition to the digital economy.
- Improving wellbeing of the Northern Australian community by fostering the important link between digital inclusion, wellbeing and social cohesion.
