The Digital Society Research Grant (DSRG) is a grant provided by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), usually twice a year. The DSRG builds the research evidence base necessary to promote and improve our understanding of the human and social factors, which affects and contributes to the adoption and usage of digital technologies and services. In so doing, DSRG funded research works provide inputs in ensuring that the advancements in communications infrastructure and services contribute to the inclusion and participation of all segments of the population in the realisation of a Digitally Connected and Informed Society (Digital Society).
The DSRG seeks GUIDED / OPEN research projects to clarify regulatory and developmental gaps and inform actionable outcomes in the following categories (subject to CFP requirement):
- Digital Citizenship and Cyberwellness (DCC) which is aimed at clarifying gap areas influencing participation, positive uptake and wellness in an increasingly digitally dependent world.
- Digital Inclusion (DI) which seeks to clarify regulatory and developmental gaps in areas related to factors that impede equality of access and challenge the paradigm of ensuring that no one is left behind or is deprived of digital connectivity and its benefits.
