Add, swipe, click: More and more people are connecting digitally. At the same time, it is difficult for many people who have recently moved to a new city or live in large housing blocks to make contact in the immediate vicinity. The University of Freiburg’s “Soziale Nachbarschaft und Technik” (“Social Neighborhood and Technology”) digital communication network, or SoNaTe for short, could make things a lot easier. Dr. Rul von Stülpnagel is in charge of the project, which aims to make everyday interaction and the provision of neighborhood services and leisure activities more accessible. The project is currently being tested in Freiburg.
