Measuring the impacts of Civic Technology for researchers, funders, governments and organisations
mySociety’s research team seeks to discover what works — and what doesn’t — when it comes to our own technologies and those of others in our field.
By analysing data, conducting fieldwork, looking at outcomes, assessing reach, and through user interventions, we work to understand the true impact of digital tools on government and civic engagement. We aim to create a clear mandate for the sector and a meeting place where all interested parties can discuss findings.
