We support and engage in research related to our ongoing projects. The aim of this research is to facilitate knowledge production in ICT4D, while strengthening ongoing and future projects. Based on fieldwork/field studies, the research provides scientific analysis of outcomes and results. The research is carried out by qualified researchers at Spider and our partner universities in Sweden, in collaboration with local researchers in partner countries. All research projects are prepared in close consultation with our project partners. The research projects are short in duration (one year), and our support is limited to costs related to fieldwork and local researchers. Researchers are drawn from different disciplinary backgrounds.
