Vidi grant for research project 'Migrant generations in the digital society'

02 July 2023

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded a Vidi grant of up to €800,000 to Assistant Professor of Media and Journalism Studies Dr Çigdem Bozdag Bucak. With this grant, she can develop her own innovative five-year research plan.

Migrant generations in the digital society: a multi-level study of socio-cultural factors influencing digital inclusion

The ability to effectively use digital technologies has become a prerequisite for participating in many spheres of social life. Digital inclusion implies that all citizens have an equal chance to participate in the digital society. This project will study the digital inclusion of migrant generations in the Netherlands and develop a new conceptual framework focusing on socio- cultural factors that affect digital inclusion. The team will analyse users, policies, public initiatives and educational practices – a multi-level approach to identify the overlaps and disconnects between the perspectives and needs of different actors, which will ultimately inform more effective policies for digital-inclusion.

NWO Vidi

Vidi grants are intended for experienced researchers who have been conducting successful research for some years after gaining a PhD. Alongside the Veni and Vici grants, the Vidi grant is part of the NWO Talent Programme. Within this programme, researchers are free to submit their own topics for funding. In total, 551 researchers submitted their research proposals in the hope of acquiring funding during this round of Vidi applications. 97 of these proposals were honoured. Among these were six from UG and UMCG.
