Digitox seminar January 2021

How to study disconnection and detox? A panel on challenges and opportunities of larger projects

Research on digital detoxing and disconnection is expanding, but most studies are small. In this seminar, we hear from participants in three of the larger European projects, funded by national research councils and the ERC. The seminar discusses the challenges and opportunities for larger projects in this field.
