Social impact of technology

Technological development has profound impacts on our lives.. And yet, relative to its importance, it receives little academic, political and research interest. Just Economics has spent several years developing a portfolio of work relating to the social impacts of technology. We are experts in the measurement of technology impacts and have a good understanding of the challenges of doing evaluation in this area. We have conducted several literature reviews, including on the impact of the internet on social isolation and loneliness. Current projects include a data synthesis and review of evaluation options  for Technology Enabled Care on behalf of the Scottish Government.

Just Economics was commissioned by BT to carry out an SROI evaluation of BT’s digital skills programme aimed at older people and people living in remote locations. This was one of the first SROIs to be produced on digital inclusion in the UK and was accompanied by a report on valuing digital inclusion.
