Grant amount: $44,570

Southern Cross University’s Regional Initiative for Social Innovation and Research group undertook a collaborative project designed to measure and understand the economic, social, and community impact of access to and use of broadband-enabled information technologies.

Baseline data sets were produced on the levels of effective use of the internet, on psychological measures of resilience (including self-confidence, self-efficacy and sense of community) and on attitudes to uptake and use of electronic communication. An evidence-based strategic advice paper to inform future policy development was also put together.
