Volunteering and Altruism in the Digital Economy – Workshop Outcomes

As part of the workshop on Volunteering and Altruism in the Digital Economy run by the VOLCROWE team in Oxford in April, a number of issues and research questions of mutual interest to those in attendance were discussed and recorded.

These have now been written up in the form of this VOLCROWE Volunteering and Altruism in the Digital Economy Workshop Outcomes document, which groups the issues and research questions into a number of key thematic areas, including finance, community and data.  The questions and issues highlighted in the document serve to highlight where research efforts are most needed, we well as many areas of potential collaboration between academic teams working in the area.  For example, the VOLCROWE project is committed to tackling several of these issues in areas such as management and gamification.

The document has been distributed by e-mail as part of the formation of a network of academic and practitioners in attendance at the Oxford workshop with a shared interest in digital volunteering and altruistic behaviours.  Please contact the VOLCROWE project team if you would like to join and receive e-mail notifications from this group.
