The experiment: SensibleDTU

An important part of the Social Fabric project is SensibleDTU experiment: the collection of a data set of hitherto unprecedented size and quality by the distribution of smart phones to 1000 newly started students at the Technical University of Denmark. The phones come equipped with an app that collects data on social interactions among the students on all relevant channels: face-to-face (via Bluetooth), sms, phone conversations, email and online social networks.

The data will not only serve the researchers but also the participants themselves. A focus area of the DTU project is to innovate how the data can be made available and useful for the students.

The experiment has its own website ( where you can read more about it.

Participation is only open for DTU Students in their bachelor’s degree during the academic year 2013-14.
