The interdisciplinary research project We:Design deals with the challenges of labour market access for young people, especially with regard to digital inequalities.

On the one hand, job application processes are explored in a participatory way through interviews, short films, digital diaries, and visits to industry partners; on the other hand, young people become co-developers of an open-source, free and low-threshold app for creating job applications in prototyping workshops.

An article about We:Design appeared on the Societal Impact Platform of the Faculty of Social Sciences. ARTICLE

The project is a collaboration between the Computational Empowerment Lab and the Vienna Visual Anthropology Lab (University of Vienna), funded by the AK Wien Digitalisation Fund Work 4.0.
