According to digimeter 2016 trend report, not everyone is surfing the digital wave at the same speed. On the one hand, one in three is heavily dependent on their smartphone or social media (and 13% are actually suffering from digibesity); on the other, 11% are unable to use digital applications properly.

About digimeter

How many hours of TV do people watch in Flanders? Which social media is used and for what purpose? How do the Flemish access the news? Every year the imec digimeter report gives us answers to all these questions. For this purpose we organize an annual survey among at least 1,500 inhabitants of Flanders, aged 15 and over.

Everyone can view the results, but the report is particularly important as reference or as a source of inspiration for researchers, industry and decision makers. For their pilot research and the user panels required to carry out this research, imec.livinglabs use the profile details gathered during the digimeter survey.

Test panel

Imec’s digimeter survey is one of the most important elements for imec.livinglabs pilot research. It's here that creative inventions are co-developed and tested among panels of end users. The digimeter community has been asked to take part.

Participation in a panel of end users like this has lots of advantages. Members are the first to come into contact with new ideas, products and services. For example, they are the first to drive an electronic car, take a walk wearing Google glasses, or check out a new city game with other locals.
