Digital awareness available to everyone
We are an initiative of the UPC that promotes digital awareness so that people, schools and associations that need it, enjoy technology safely.
What is digital awareness?
Digital awareness represents the knowledge of the risks and opportunities presented by technology to make an effective and sensible use of it.
Issues such as digital rights, cybersecurity, digital inclusion and many more are part of this important concept in today’s society.
We can distinguish different types of digital awareness, and all of them aim to achieve a secure and quality digitization for everyone. Digital awareness is needed to build the world of tomorrow.
We are a team of UPC professors and students who aim to improve the digital awareness in our society. For this purpose, we take advantage of the experience, knowledge and resources of a university with an eminently technical and technological approach, the UPC.
