About the research 2009-2012

The research brings up a much needed academic input to the discussion on public participation and the challenges of the welfare state. The aim of the research is to study, analyse and synthesize, how and to what extent community informatics-assisted time planning with its special approach and tools will enhance the mastering or sustaining of the glocal everyday life of citizens and their participation in local development, communal production and the building of social capital of their community. The argument is that new policy instruments, such as time policies and time planning, will benefit both individuals and collectives, such as local communities, if multilevel and multi-dimensional measures are simultaneously orchestrated in a participatory and context-sensitive way.
