About the Project


The Media Change & Innovation Division is the Swiss country partner of the World Internet Project (WIP).  This  international, collaborative project is looking at the social, political and economic impact of the Internet and other new technologies. The project started in 1999 and is chaired by Prof. Jeff Cole from the Annenberg School Center for the Digital Future, University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles. The consortium includes more than 25 partners in countries and regions all over the world. The WIP conducts detailed, international comparative longitudinal studies on the use and impact of the Internet, publishes national and international reports and holds annual conferences. Results of the WIP-CH 2023 are based on an online survey with a representative sample of Swiss internet users aged 14 and over.
