EPSRC NetworkPlus on Social Justice through the Digital Economy

Not-Equal is a three-year £1.2m UK Research and Innovation Network+ project on Social Justice and the Digital Economy.

Not-Equal aims to bring together and resource collaborations between academia, industry, government and civil society to explore and develop innovative responses to issues of social justice in technology design and implementation.

The project will explore current issues around the ethics of technology, algorithm bias, and how to create fairer working conditions in the platform economy.

Led by Newcastle University, in collaboration with Royal Holloway University of London, the University of Sussex and Swansea University, Not-Equal includes funding calls for collaborative projects and offers support for events and activities (symposia, workshops, hackathons, design sprints).
