Information and learning at immigrants’ fingertips

July 8, 2012

SMARTPHONES will form the basis of a three-year social inclusion project to promote cultural diversity in Europe, particularly among women. This is possible thanks to a £368,000 research grant from the European Commission to The Open University, which is a partner in the project led by Lucas Paletta of Joanneum Research in Austria. The project aims to improve integration, skills and local knowledge for immigrants living in European cities by literally placing crucial information at their fingertips.
