Become part of a new research & development paradigm

DCitizens is reconfiguring the power relationships between academia and local communities to promote positive social change. We host a series of public civic events with our partner network to shape the research and innovation agenda for community-based organisations, the university, and the city of Lisbon. Additionally, we support community-led projects through an annual commissioning call.


DCitizens delivers an annual call for collaborative projects. We are seeking innovative projects from citizens and community-based organisations in the greater Lisbon area that aim to make a positive social change through the use of digital technologies.
