The researchers of this project aim to study human digitalization during the COVID-19 crisis with the main question: how do we innovate to the benefit of people and society. In this specific project, they focus on social companion robots and their potential to combat loneliness that has arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The need that is addressed in this project is the loneliness of people, specifically the elderly, that has arisen due to the COVID-19 crisis and social isolation measures.
